Event Details

The lack of women in technology and startup culture is no longer breaking news. So what are we doing about it? What’s next? Do any effective solutions exist to get more women into the industry?

Join us for an intimate discussion with inspiring women who have paved their way to become digital leaders. They will be sharing their advice–both personal to professional – on the challenges women face, and how they managed to achieve career success. The conversation will also focus on what our panelists have seen as effective means to change the ratio. 

Our last couple discussions were sell-out events, with past panelists including female leaders from Hootsuite, Slack, Microsoft, Vision Critical, Boeing and more. You'll want to reserve your seat today.

We'll be closing with a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to ask our panelists questions on leadership, empowerment, breaking stereotypes and much more. This is also a great opportunity to network with like-minded professionals to celebrate women leading in technology.
