In spite of barriers they often faced in IT, many highly competent and qualified women have risen through the ranks to become CIOs or CTOs, or to lead in other technology roles. How did they succeed, and how does their success impact a company's bottom line, corporate culture, and board-level objectives? We'll discuss:
- Current research on the state of the IT workforce.
- Insights on gender diversity and inclusion in the IT function.
- Success stories and perspectives on leadership from women CIOs.
Participants will get a fresh look at how IT organizations can become more inclusive and how successful women leaders have established professional influence through collaboration, communication, and personal brand building.
