Event Description:

Our Women in Business Panel discussions are dedicated to the business & entrepreneurial success of all women. Throughout the year we have several workshops and panel discussions to connect with like-minded women. Get inspired by impressive speakers, unique stories and build a strong network that will help you to accelerate in your job.
The lack of diversity, or non-defaults, in the business of making technology is a problem in both the startup world and the established tech industry generally. We are excited to have successful women in the technology industry from different fields. Key questions will include:  What are the current barriers facing women in the technology industry; and why roles models are important to inspire more girls to enter the world of technology.
