EVENT DETAILS
Women in technology workforces are still underrepresented. Join Ellevate & IHS Markit for a panel discussing what's going on behind the scenes & the inspiring moments of their tech careers.

The good news: We're making great strides in closing the gender gap in the technology realm.

The bad news: Many tech startups remain to be a "boy's club" & struggle with retaining or attracting female talent.

Despite the fantastic initiatives & companies getting girls into STEM & companies valuing Diversity & Inclusion, well-established companies still fill 80% of their tech jobs with men, in addition to maintaining work environments that are not inclusive. This issue has affected generations of women & minorities in the fields of technology, engineering, & computer science, creating challenges to climbing the ladder in their prospective workplaces.

Our world is becoming increasingly saturated with tech innovations that change our everyday lives & reshape our world (for better & worse). Making a change to the gender imbalance & tapping into the current & upcoming talent of women & girls in tech is absolutely imperative for all of our futures.

So join Ellevate in partnership with IHS Markit & a panel of women in the tech field as we get real about their experiences, celebrate the inevitable revolution of the industry, & dive into the wealth of emerging opportunities for women & girls.
