How to Achieve Better Business Outcomes by Creating an Inclusive Workplace

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed women’s participation in the workforce to lows not seen in decades, a scenario particularly acute in the tech sector that has chronically suffered from a lack of female and diverse representation at all ranks.

In this session, I will address the challenges and opportunities I see for companies to use this unique time to redesign their approach to diverse hiring.

Founder & CEO of Advancing Women in Tech (AWIT); GM of AWS Data Protection and Governance at Advancing Women in Technology

Building Women Tech Leaders in a Male-Driven World

The diversity gap among tech leadership roles is wider today than it was in 1984. A 2021 report found that 50% of women abandon tech careers by 35 and are leaving at a 45% higher rate than men. Companies say they want to help, but how much are they really doing to change representation?
