Women in Tech: Closing the Gap

March 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Women are obtaining degrees in STEM but struggle joining and staying in the tech industry. Women make up 20% of engineering graduates, yet only 11% of practicing engineers are women. Nearly 40% of women who earn engineering degrees quit or never enter the profession. The primary reasons women are underrepresented in technology are lack of mentors; lack of female role models in the field; gender bias in the workplace; unequal growth opportunities compared to men; and unequal pay for the same positions. Join our panel of innovative Women in Technology as they discuss the importance of closing the gender gap in STEM; and the importance of increasing the female population in the field.

Speakers:

  • Rachel Niemer (WISE managing Director)
  • Marie Worsham Banks (Sr. Network Engineer for Verizon)
  • Natalie King Esq. (CEO, Dunamis Clean Energy Partners)
  • Dr. Tawanna Dillahunt (Professor of Engineering and Information Science)
  • Tiffani Stokley (Technical Data Steward Rocket Central)
