An Annual event

Empowering women in technology

Technology is everywhere around us and we all use it, both men and women equally. Yet if men build all the technology, it’s likely women’s needs in technology won’t be considered. We need both men and women to build the technical future of our world.

Agenda

Watch the inspirational documentary CODE: Debugging the gender gap about the gender gap in technology and listen to a panel discussion with stellar women technology leaders from Airbnb, Salesforce, Blurb, Jawbone and Thomson Reuters. They will demystify the diversity of tech jobs and uncover inspiring aspects of their career in technology: what inspired them to work in technology, obstacles they faced in their careers (like maternity), and their advice to women.

This lack of women in tech is more than a conversation about gender parity — it’s an existential issue for our industry, and an economic challenge for our country.
