Ghela Boskovich is the founder of Femtech Global. Women in Technology has always seemed to challenge the norm and the status quo and their role and representation in the financial industry is no exception. When California recently passed legislation demanding publicly traded companies to have at least one woman on their boards of directors by the end 2019, it really makes you question why this wasn’t a norm. The fact of the matter is simple: business in every industry, is male-dominated. And while the slow evolution to break stereotypes has been taking place amongst individuals, no real change will happen until policies in businesses don’t change, which won’t remain in effect until the legislation doesn’t drive it.
Just like any business, concepts are also fluid yet are can only be stretch to the point until they break. Considering the speed of business in today’s world, change has to take place so that it will remain part of the system. Change, too, has to be sustainable. In this interview, Ghela Boskovich talks about the discomfort that drives change in digital ecosystems and the ripples of change that eventually force people to change the status quo.
