Women in Tech: Optimizing the Workforce

Studies show that business teams with an equal gender mix perform significantly better than male-dominated teams when it comes to both sales and profits. How are women changing the tech world? What are the challenges women face in a tech career? Whether you identify as a woman or man, someone who works with a woman or someone who knows a woman– this event is for you. That’s right, this event is for EVERYONE! Hear from both regional and local women, their stories, and their successes.
