Event Details

Women in LeadershipComputing related professions rank among the fastest growing areas of the job market. By 2020 there will be an estimated 1.4 million IT related jobs from CIO to engineering to programming and everything in between.

 

Technical innovation continues to play a role in every sector and industry in the US and global economy, but while jobs are increasing, less women are pursing education in computer and information sciences. In 2010 only 18% of computer and information science undergrad degrees went to women. 

 

The industry is failing to attract and retain a diverse range of technical talent but we can harness our influence to change and even reverse this trend!  This issue crosses gender lines and is equally important to men and women in technology -- how can you increase your personal impact as a mentor and role model to encourage diversity in your own organization and professional community? 

 

The AWT May Forum features an accomplished panel of experienced executives from some of Southern California’s most well-known companies who recognize the value and strength that diverse teams and leaders bring to their own organizations and the technology community as a whole. Join us for this important, relevant discussion that promises to inspire and empower you to make a positive impact on our industry’s next generation of leaders.
