About this Event

Don't miss out. Attend this month’s Women’s Voice in Tech event!

Be part of the conversation and help change the future for women in tech! Top executives from NBCUniversal, AT&T, Motor Trend Group and ZEFR will discuss:

  • The greatest opportunities for growing your career in tech
  • Trending roles -- what’s hot now, and what’s just around the corner?
  • The changing landscape for women working in male-dominated industries
  • Overcoming bias in the workplace -- what they’ve seen work in their companies

You’ll learn how each of these leaders built their careers, and the challenges they faced along the way. They’ll offer advice for women working in all tech disciplines, and answer your most burning questions!

Join the Women’s Voices in Tech community in welcoming exceptional leaders from a range of industries:
