Hi, I am Dr. Anne Graefer. I am the founder of GenderIQ, a gender & diversity consultancy based in Munich, Germany. We are working mainly with Startups, illustrating how diversity and inclusion can help them succeed. My background is in academia. For over ten years I have been teaching and researching gender and digital cultures at UK Universities. My research focus on the emotional quality of digital media and is published in two books and numerous peer reviewed academic journal articles.

Examples of previous talks / appearances:
