The UK’s leading diversity-driven blockchain educational and networking ecosystem, Women in Blockchain Talks (WiBT), has launched two new chapters in Dubai and Warsaw. The launch ties in with an increasing global footprint of the organisation, with chapters also set to launch in Manchester, Barcelona, Berlin, Karachi, and Delhi by end of year.

The chapter launch follows increasing global attention and priority of ESG initiatives. By 2025, it is expected that around 33% of all global assets under management will have ESG mandates. This means that in fast-growing spaces like Blockchain and Web3, inclusivity and diversity are moving from “nice to have” to necessity.

The events in the new chapters will be monthly or bi-monthly, and will focus on mini panels and fireside chats with dynamic women in the blockchain space, as well as networking and updates from the wider WiBT community.

The launches form a part of WiBT’s wider mission to introduce and onboard 50,000 women into blockchain by 2023. These global chapters will enable individuals to not only connect with other like-minded individuals, but those that share their language and culture, whilst still being part of WiBT’s international and diverse community.

As Lavinia Osbourne, founder of Women in Blockchain Talks, says: “Not everyone speaks English, or can travel to major cities to attend blockchain and/or crypto/web3 events, so if blockchain is the paradigm shift that many talk of, and the future of money, business and career, how do we involve those individuals?

WiBT made the decision a long time ago to create safe and supportive spaces for everyone, particularly women, as that is our focus, to learn and prosper. We have now found the right collaborators, leaders on the ground, to do this.”
