Women in Tech

A recent NCSU research study indicates that diversity in the workforce is critical to long-term success and is better for the bottom line, yet women and minorities in the tech sector are still lagging behind. 
 
While North Carolina has ranked #1 in the percentage of women in the tech workforce for the past three years, there is still plenty of room for more women in these roles.  With thousands of technology jobs to be filled across the state, women could play a critical role in the future of the tech sector in the state.

Join us for a panel discussion that will focus on how to get more women in the tech sector that will include perspectives from female executives, a male mentor and a youth-serving agency that offers STEM programming to girls.
