The computing industry is male-dominated, and female leaders stand out for their rarity. Which characteristics do women leaders have that give them the resilience to succeed in this industry? We shall hear from two senior directors in the online space about their career experience and their intentions for the future. We'll debate the issues arising from the talks.
This event is about women in leadership, about women being confident, resilient and having a strong identity in technology and computing industry careers.
