The Tech Landscape and Why Tech Needs Diversity

Tech is a booming industry with growing importance in any given economy, but it is also suffering from a large skill shortage at a time when a criminally low proportion of women are entering and staying in the field. Anne-Marie will dissect the HERstory of the tech industry of the past and present and discuss what we can do to cultivate future tech leaders.
