What: “An all male panel at a women’s event? That’s right. We believe the conversation about advancing women in technology is not one that should be had in isolation, especially when organizations large and small are feeling the effect of talent shortages. Our goal is to strengthen the position of women in tech, including those who attend our events, by presenting opportunities to hear varying perspectives. During this panel, male leaders from different facets of the Seattle technology and digital community will share their perspective on what is necessary for women to play a more significant role—both in volume and influence—in the tech industry.”
