“Mobile biometrics can be the first step in unlocking opportunities for the previously unidentified in terms of financial services, healthcare, personal safety, and social programs.” – On Tim Tang, Management Consultant, Integrated Biometrics
Integrated Biometrics management consultant On Tim Tang was invited to speak to the United Nations last week in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Tang joined the company last year, serving as a management consultant tasked with shaping the company’s internal structures to promote continuous and long-term growth. And she brought her business expertise to a Women’s Day event held at United Nations headquarters on Friday – the Annual Women’s Empowerment and Youth Development Event.
In her talk, Tang participated in a panel discussion on the importance of including arts education in STEM academic programs.
In a statement announcing her participation in the UN event, Tang emphasized how biometric technologies can be used to empower women. “Mobile biometrics can be the first step in unlocking opportunities for the previously unidentified in terms of financial services, healthcare, personal safety, and social programs,” she said.
The news comes after Integrated Biometrics’ announcement toward the end of last year that its technology would be used by Nigerian government officials to enroll citizens in the country’s Bank Verification Number program, another example of how biometrics can be used for greater social inclusion and equity.
