Can women thrive in male-dominated environments?

Huawei Board Director and Corporate Senior Vice President Catherine Chen (pictured) spoke to the 2020 Web Summit in Lisbon about her 26 years working in the tech industry and her personal journey to the top of Huawei.

Chen said that we needed more female leaders, exemplifying not only the strength of women but also a unique and innovative power that will drive the digital economy forward.

“Gender equality is not about women and men sharing the same mindsets and behaviour. Rather, it’s about equal opportunities and rights, which can only come from a more inclusive, diverse and healthy society,” she told the summit, held online on 3 December.

Women account for almost half of the world’s five billion working population, but only around half of them participate in the labour force. “In the Digital Age, we do not only need more women represented in the industry, we also need women leaders,” she pointed out.
