PANEL: Breaking Stereotypes: Empowering more Women to Pursue Tech Careers

Workshop Room 105

Friday 10.Nov / 14:20

Did you know that women hold less than 30% of tech roles globally and under 15% of leadership positions, significantly impacting innovation and society?

Join WE LEAD, a nonprofit organization on a mission to bridge the gender gap in tech, for an enlightening panel discussion featuring prominent tech leaders.

The panel will delve into the current state of the tech industry, explore the role of stereotypes in gender disparity, and discuss the essential steps to promote gender equity in tech. Our goal is to ensure that women - cis and trans - not only secure a seat at the table but also emerge as influential voices in technology, enabling both society and businesses to maximize their human capital.

If you're a tech industry professional eager to make a positive impact, this panel discussion is tailored for you. Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain insights from top industry experts and pose your own questions.
