This summit wants more women in mobile tech

Dialogue to partner with worldwide executive search gurus EG1 at key Barcelona event

Dialogue is to link up with global executive search experts EG1 in a bid to boost female recruitment in the mobile tech sector.

The sector, which traditionally lacks female talent, is seeking more women executives amid growing evidence that gender diversity boosts profitability and improves customer-supplier relations.

Dialogue and EG1, a Dialogue Affiliation Partner, will be on hand to discuss the challenges of getting more women into a male-dominated sector at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 22-26 February.

EG1 chief executive Nathan Ott, pioneer of the groundbreaking Game Changer Index, is speaking at the showcase on 25 February about how to create global awareness of women in the industry.

Renee La Londe, chief executive and Founder of iTalent Corp, said: “Technology may be the key to success in the digital economy, but it is ultimately our people who will make it happen. As businesses grow and strengthen in the digital economy, it becomes even more important to define the core values that inform the company’s brand, culture and business strategy. For iTalent for example, these core values are: exceptional customer service, open communication, trust and integrity, humility, resourcefulness, giving back to the community, and work-life balance.”

Ott’s speech comes after he and Niki Mullin, Dialogue business development manager, attend 23 February’s prestigious iTalent dinner in collaboration with GSMA, the member body for mobile operators.
