Despite advances in STEM programs and targeted initiatives, not enough women today are choosing—or sticking with—a technical career.

  • Once women have entered the tech workforce, what are the best approaches to mentoring advocating, and serving as role models to help them thrive in their careers?
  • Many companies advocate strongly for diversity in the workplace, what are some examples of corporate initiatives that are working?
