Welcome to The Bigger Pie

DIVERSITY IN BLOCKCHAIN

The Bigger Pie is here to support professionals and businesses in the blockchain, cryptoasset and distributed ledger sector.

As women represent less than 10% of those involved in this sector we focus our efforts on supporting the incredibly talented and pioneering #womeninblockchain. Research shows that businesses which embrace diversity and inclusion in gender, ethnicity and culture are profitable and successful.

It’s our job to make it easier for businesses to adopt good practice in a diverse workforce. We help you by providing support and resources for female founders and employees, raising visibility, attracting talent, and finding the right expertise for your teams.

ACCESS OUR EXPERTISE

The Bigger Pie community includes experts across the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency, from project managers and developers to consultants and keynote speakers. Advisors have decades of experience in industries from banking and fintech to agrifood, construction, healthcare, marketing, HR and professional bodies.

Blockchain and distributed ledgers are nascent technology and the promise of their potential and successful widespread delivery is yet to be bridged.

The businesses that will harness this technology to deliver new solutions across the globe have yet to be built, which makes this emerging technology doubly exciting.

JOIN OUR COMMUNITY

The Bigger Pie has a thriving and active global community whose members share their experience and learn from each other. The community is open to women and gender minorities interested in blockchain, crypto, de-fi and emerging tech.

Its purpose is to connect and support the incredible women who are already in the space, shine a light on the work they do to highlight these role models. Make sure women have a platform to share their expertise at events, and enable them to learn and develop their careers together, while attracting more women into the sector.

Alongside The Bigger Pie events, there is a programme of wider events sourced from our members, often with VIP access. Community Rules.
