    Women on the Block was created by blockchain enthusiasts to promote diversity, inclusion, and empowerment of women in technology. Our goal is to educate and empower women to become involved in the emerging and disruptive blockchain industry.

     

    We are presenting a day of learning and thought leadership around blockchain technology. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be earmarked to support girls and women in technology.

     

    Our event will feature women thought leaders in the blockchain community. The concept of having all women speakers was designed to highlight and recognize the contributions and innovations of women across the blockchain industry globally.

     

    All genders are encouraged to attend!
