ZS Celebrates International Women’s Day at Bpeace’s Women-Centered Innovation Panel

Posted by ZS on Mar 14, 2018 1:30:00 PM

In honor of International Women’s Day, the Women’s Leadership Initiative and ZS Cares from ZS’s New York City office co-hosted a panel with Spotify and the Business Council for Peace (Bpeace) called “Beyond ‘Pink It and Shrink It’: Why Women-Centered Innovation is the Next Big Thing.”

The panel featured serial entrepreneur and author Danielle Kayembe and Victoria Summers, an associate principal at ZS, and moderated by Liz Long, creator of the Learn to Make a Product platform and a Forbes contributor. The panel was born from Danielle’s article “The Silent Rise of the Female-Driven Economy,” which describes the lack of female-centric design today and points out that while women account for 85% of all consumer purchases, they only make up 15% of product designers and engineers.
