Triangle Women in Tech Panel – Motivating Women to be Leaders + Entrepreneurs in Tech

November 01, 2019


Over the past 50 years, women in the U.S. have made great strides in education and entry into the workforce. Today, the majority of bachelor degree graduates (60%) and master’s level graduates (57%) are women, and nearly half (48%) of the U.S. workforce is comprised of women. However, as the world rapidly shifts to digital, women account for only 20% of the bachelor’s degrees conferred in engineering, computer science, and physics and regardless of specific area of technology, only about 25% of these positions are held by women. (National Center for Educational Statistics). And, while women represent almost half of the workforce, just 5% are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and that number expands only slightly when looking at Fortune 1000 companies. (Pew Research) 

Join us for a panel discussion with female leaders on tech and entrepreneurship. They’ll share their unique journeys, discuss how to shift the paradigm, and provide insights on how to advocate for change for now and the next generation of women.
