The innovation and technology sector holds “huge opportunities for women,” said to become more tangible with a new alliance aimed at advancing women and girls in the field.

That’s the assessment of Fiona Bayat-Renoux, leader of innovation at UN Women, which on Thursday launched the Global Innovation Coalition for Change (GICC).

The coalition is comprised of 22 partners from private sector, non-profit and academic institutions that will work together over a two-year period.

Natalie Hutchison asked Ms Bayat-Renoux how the GICC alliance came to fruition, and what best practices will ensure it succeeds.
