Caroline launched 50inTech, the #1 gender diversity tech recruiting platform in Europe, with the desire to create the largest network of women in the digital world and to connect them to committed companies to achieve parity in Tech.
“We absolutely need more women in big data and AI; otherwise, algorithms will be biased, and in fine innovation will always belong to only half of humanity.”
