About this event

We often hear Web3 hailed as the future of the internet, however there has been a lack of women and non-binary people getting involved. For example, only 16% of NFT projects are led by women. Join StartOut and digitalundivided for a panel discussion about Web3, why it is important, and how to get involved. Hear from a group of experienced panelists working to make Web3 more inclusive. You will walk away feeling ready to cut through the jargon and step into the world of Web3 with actionable tips and resources. There will also be time for an interactive Q&A so you can get all your burning questions answered.
