omen, historically, have been locked out of networks created by men. From architecture to sports, news to arts - even buying our own homes (it wasn’t until the 1970s that unmarried women were allowed to apply for a mortgage).
With a new digital era growing rapidly everyday - and no doubt, soon to be infiltrating all of our lives whether we like it or not - Web3 is not something that women want to be kept out of. For the sake of financial equity, safeguarding, growing businesses and societal development, women need to be as much a part of this new digital age as men to avoid deepening the gender disparities in networks of power.
As a step towards helping close the gap, The Stack World now hosts a monthly Web3 meetup, as well as events surrounding NFTs and crypto. Our first event last month saw a room filled with women business owners and entrepreneurs come together for an introduction to NFTs, with several members purchasing their first NFT with the guidance of @womenofweb3co founder Lauren Ingram, as well as Stack World founder Sharmadean Reid, and data analyst Abimbola Adebayo.
This week, our Wednesday evening event will help prevent you from getting scammed within Web3 (read this writer’s account of being hacked here), whilst on Thursday, we host our Badass Women in NFT event.
Ahead of this week’s event, we caught up with Abimbola Adebayo, founder of Pinnu Analytics - a business intelligence consultancy devoted to helping companies make informed decisions based on data. We spoke to her about her journey with NFTs, what she looks for, what she avoids, and why more women need to enter this space.
