Women in Design & Tech Leadership
In a recent publication by the National Center for Women & Information Technology, it was found that gender diversity at top management levels improves companies’ financial performance - yet the numbers show that we're far behind in hitting goals of balancing leadership roles. Join an international panel of leaders from design and tech for presentations and a town hall discussion. Learn how these individuals develop goals and practices to move toward leadership equality while addressing the similarities and differences between American, European, and Asian cultures and the way we work together.
