September 6, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Explore Why the World of Tech Needs More Diversity!
Many companies within Tech and IT ask for more gender diversity. However, women entering this rather male-dominated area often encounter several challenges or feel unsuitable in the environment. These challenges and the Tech environment have been stereotypically presented in many years with bias against women and a masculine environment.
This session seeks to highlight why diversity is important in the creation of new products and solutions. This session seeks to enlighten and discuss the challenges that work against diversity, and above all, encourage women to follow a career within tech or IT because that is where the magic happens!
Otherwise said, this session explores why women make sense in technology.
