The global picture of women’s representation in tech is improving, but more needs to be done to achieve gender equality. Deloitte Global predicts that by 2022, the share of women in the workforce will reach nearly 33% of her at the largest tech companies. This is her 2% increase over the previous year. The gender gap is widening in Web3 as well. The whole idea behind the open and decentralized model of the Metaverse is to create a space for equal opportunity. But female builders and creators are a minority in a very male-dominated space. In fact, her ArtTactic, an art market research firm, points out that in 2021, only 16% of her NFT sales will be won by female artists.

How can we raise and advance gender equality in technology and the metaverse, and celebrate how women are building innovation? In another special episode of “Innovation Without Boundaries,” Samsung Electronics America’s CMO We asked Michelle Crossan-Matos, , for her thoughts on how to break down prejudice. Later in the episode, take a behind-the-scenes look at NFT.NYC’s 837/NEXT from the “Women of Web3” panel highlighting the importance of female representation in Web3.
