This topic: Women in Tech Leadership Roles: A roundtable discussion on the challenges and opportunities facing women in the workplace is of particular importance for our tech companies and their employees.
Diversity is linked to innovation and customer-centric management. Tech companies in particular lag other industries in terms of diversity, particularly in leadership positions. In 2015, 25% of the computing workforce were women, and less than 10% were women of color. (5% were Asian, 3% were African-American, and 2% were Hispanic.
The topic is targeted to men and women in both executive and management positions as well as aspiring leaders.
A prestigious panel of local women leaders will lead the discussion moderated by April Benetollo, formerly VP of Marketing at Daxko and now serves as the Director of Marketing and Development for MOMENTUM.
