The European Commission’s director of the EU’s technology and communications policy unit (DG Connect) decided in March this year to boycott all-male panels (All-male panels in tech: We say no!). With the European Women’s Lobby, we had a meeting with Director Robert Madelin to discuss the DG’s experience, the telling results of Monitoring Month (stay tuned!) and the next steps to ending all-male panels in Brussels.
