10 Apr Global Blockchain Summit Addresses Diversity with ‘Global Women in Blockchain’ Panel and GWB’s Formal US Launch!
Featuring an Incredible Lineup of Female Blockchain Experts
Global Women in Blockchain (GWB) is the first international umbrella organization designed to activate and accelerate the powerful partnerships of women in order to lead in the education, development, and promotion of blockchain technologies. Our non-profit group aims to inject much-needed diversity into tech by empowering women through shared business connections and exchanges, associations, meet-ups, virtual town halls, learning events and more. GWB aspires to have at least one female delegate per country to lead in service of women by fostering an ecosystem of trust, support, inclusion, conscious leadership and socio-economic advancement.
GWB invites you to join in this movement at its formal US launch in Denver, Colorado, at the Global Blockchain Summit (GBS) April 19th & 20th, 2018. The launch will be captured live on Friday, the footage from which will be featured in an upcoming documentary focusing on GWB not only as an organization but also as part of the burgeoning women in tech social movement. Shaun Frankson, co-founder of The Plastic Bank, which helps address the issue of plastic in the ocean while reducing poverty, is a keynote speaker at the Summit, and Nina Nichols, GWB founder, will appear live on stage for an exciting announcement. The GBS invited Global Women in Blockchain to announce at its first summit of the year, focusing on diversity, equality and women in blockchain along with a robust retinue of internationally renowned blockchain experts to discuss current trends and innovations across the spectrum. In addition, the Summit is doing its part to provide a positive impact for the environment by hosting a Plastic Neutral Event.
The Summit will feature some of the world’s most notable blockchain and distributed ledger experts as well as leading blockchain companies. Some of the prominent women that will take stage (most of whom are GWB members), include:

Global Blockchain Summit co-founder John Carpenter states, “Our world is being revolutionized by blockchain and related technologies. This assembly of blockchain experts connects those that are applying blockchain in order to drive a better future in the sectors they lead and aim to transform. More than ever, those driving these transformations are women.”
“Indeed, women are fast becoming a driving force in the blockchain revolution,“ says Global Women in Blockchain founder, Nina Nichols. “So much so that our organization was built specifically to serve as a global aggregator for women who want to share, learn and expand upon the roles of women leaders in the blockchain space. We’ll be sharing much more about the GWB initiative at the Summit and couldn’t be more excited that the organizers have invited us to promote our US launch at the event.”
The GWB launch at the Summit will include several prominent guests, including Dr. Youngsook Park, well-known futurist and GWB Advisor and South Korea Chair, who will be flying in from Seoul along with her Korean delegation. Mila Popovich, GWB Global Chair, recently visited Dr. Park in Seoul to announce GWB’s Asian launch at the Global Leaders Summit, held at the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The event was sponsored and organized by TV Chosun and attracted over 500 blockchain enthusiasts.
