Despite the well-noted lack of gender diversity present in the technology industry, there exist many women who are currently breaking down barriers in tech. The University of Phoenix and Texas Diversity Council are proud to give voice to these leaders in the form of the new Women in Technology Symposium.
The Symposium will run over three days, providing attendees an opportunity for you to understand, learn and hear different perspectives from a diverse mix of female technology executives who have made the climb up the corporate ladder. These roundly successful leaders will sit down to discuss the ‘Tech Gender Gap’ – the under-representation of women in the tech sector in the face of booming opportunities and plenty job openings. They will also focus on the ‘STEM Pipeline’ – the decline of young women entering early technology and engineering paths. Among the panelists:
Chief Information Officer | Texas Instruments
April McMillan, Ph.D.
National Director of STEM Programs | Boy Scouts of America
Chief Information Officer | Intuit
Through the unique perspectives of these Women in Tech, the Symposium will seek to “educate, inspire, and encourage attendees to reflect on their organizational goals for attracting more women in key technology positions as well as investigate ways your organization can get involved with S.T.E.M. related activities to attract the next generation of technology leaders.”
