Description

We've invited a panel of experts to discuss the recent media focus on women in technology, and the potential impact of the increased public attention the topic has received over the past year.

How has this changed the perception of women in technology?

What difference is this likely to make in the industry?

How do the stories and images influence young women considering pursuing a career in technology?

Ticket proceeds benefit Expanding Your Horizons, a hands-on Math, Science, Engineering and Technology career conference whose purpose is to foster high school girls’ interest in STEM and to increase their awareness of career opportunities for women.  The ultimate goal is to motivate them to continue STEM coursework through college so as to keep their career options open.
