Women in Technology – Data Insights:  A Panel Discussion
Over the next 5 years, tech jobs are expected to grow by 15-20%.  Filling these jobs will be a challenge because technology is fueled not by skill alone, but by innovation and creativity.  How do companies create an environment that attracts skilled, creative people and fosters innovation?  Studies have shown that diversity in the workforce key.  With many large tech companies planning to increase diversity in the workforce, it looks like a promising future ahead for women in technology.  Will women find more opportunity in the tech market and if they do, will they stay in the tech sector?  What causes women to leave tech at a rate 45% greater than men? These and other questions will be discussed by our panel, with audience participation encouraged.


Don’t miss this inspiring panel of senior female leaders as they share their stories and offer worldly advice about being fearless, standing out in the tech industry, and how they make a difference for themselves and others.
