Gender Diversity in Tech: Less Words, More Outcomes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Panelists will use first third of session time to describe four problem
statements regarding gender diversity in the tech industry with personal professional anecdotes, remaining two thirds
will be used for audience to choose a roundtable station for each
problem statement and post-it note brainstorm potential solutions for
each problem statement, facilitated by the speakers. The audience will
self-select whether their solutions are pragmatic (working within
current paradigm), disruptive (blow up/reboot the current paradigm),
resilient (self-preservation). The facilitator will look to consolidate
like-minded solutions and see where there is consensus, read out to the entire group, and make the solutions available for display for attendees to view
and sign up to move the solution forward.
