2,621 views

Published on

Is Silicon Valley biased against women? Why are fewer women graduating with a technical degree (12% today vs 37% in 1984)? Why aren’t more women rising in the tech ranks or starting businesses? Why should you care?

Join Sandy Carter, founder of Super Women's Group (38K strong), Chairperson of the Board of WITI, and Forbes Top 40 Social Marketing Master, and Reshma Saujani, founder/CEO of Girls Who Code, and Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People, as they discuss why this matters, how innovation will benefit, and how to foster an interest in tech. Learn why women need to take risks and embrace failure to give them the courage to crash through the glass ceiling or start a new business.

Sandy and Reshma will share the recent findings from an IBM research report on “Advancing Women” as well as their own experiences and advice with 5 career hacks to help you get ahead, because talent is not enough.

Whether you are a woman or man, parent or business owner, this is a must-see session.
