We at Ellevate want to highlight the bright female technologists, engineers, and sciences majors who serve as mentors, coaches and role models to others around them - not to mention work so hard in their day jobs. 

Our panel will focus on women solutions architects, engineers, technology specialists, technology sales and solutions leaders - the wins, challenges, and opportunities.

Although growing fast in many ways, the field of technology is one of the slowest fields to improve its gender disparities. Today, even well-established companies fill 80% of their tech jobs with men, in addition to work environments that are not inclusive. This issue has affected generations of women and minorities in the fields of tech and computer science, creating challenges to climbing the ladder in their prospective workplaces.

Yet, studies have showed time after time that the benefits of having women in the industry contributes to growth and company success. When programs and companies focus on helping women and minorities succeed in these fields, great progress is made. But we still have a ways to go.

Our panel will explore how representation of women and minorities will change the future of CS. Speakers will delve into what it takes to succeed in the field and share tips that worked for them in overcoming all-too-common obstacles.
