PRESS RELEASE 088
State Secretary for Global Spain meets with association Mujeres Tech to give a voice to women from the sector in drawing up the National Technology and Global Order Strategy
29/04/2021
The State Secretary for Global Spain, Manuel Muñiz, met today with Cristina Aranda, the co-founder of Mujeres Tech, within the framework of the preparatory work of the National Technology and Global Order Strategy, which is being drawn up and coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation.

Mujeres Tech is a non-profit association set up in 2015 with the aim of enhancing the visibility of women in the digital sector, foster scientific and technological vocations among young people and serve as a platform to establish a network among professionals in this field.

The aim of this meeting was to give a voice to women in the sector in the drafting of the future National Technology and Global Order Strategy. For Manuel Muñiz, “in the digital transition, which is fundamental for the economic recovery, women engaged in the digital world, technology, innovation and science will be key, and hence we want to reflect this in our future Strategy”.

That is precisely the mission of Mujeres Tech through such projects as ‘GirlsInTech’ and ‘Agile Girls’, which seek to give a voice to and empower women in the digital world from a young age, normalise their path towards leadership in a sector in which their presence is still scant and contribute to building a more diverse, inclusive and competitive society. 

For its part, the National Technology and Global Order Strategy is one of the initiatives introduced in the Foreign Action Strategy 2021-2024, approved on Tuesday by the Council of Ministers. The National Technology and Global Order Strategy will diagnose the role of technology in power relations between States with an effect on conditions of progress and society as a whole.

Over recent months, Global Spain has also met with other organisations including Barcelona Tech City – a project backed by more than 1,000 sector companies in the city, which works to position Barcelona among the main technology hubs in the world.
