Thursday, October 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm ET
Women have made notable strides in terms of recognition, equality, and advancement into leadership roles over the past few years, although there is still a lot of work to be done in terms of balancing gender ratios in the workplace – especially in technology companies.
In this session, successful women leaders will outline some of the barriers they faced in their rise to the top in leading tech companies and detail the intelligent risk-taking strategies that helped them to achieve their goals. The discussion will also focus on the challenges these women faced in their personal lives in balancing work and home responsibilities, as well as the less publicized but very real enigma of women-on-women bias and the career jeopardizing actions of female executives who are higher up on the corporate ladder
