Do Not Let Gender Bias!

Why is it important to talk about Women in Tech?

Equality of rights and opportunities for everyone is something that we should all stand for at all levels to support visibility! Women have always participated actively in the evolution of science and new technologies. To name a few: Margaret Wilcox, Maria Telkes, Florence Parpart, Ada Lovelace and Hedy Lamarr, are all Women and are all inventors. They changed the world then and the Women of today continue to do so now. They create new products that disrupt society and our daily lives. We are hosting a panel discussion to highlight the brilliant Women in Tech who work to change our world. We will discuss their stories, their personal journey and the challenges they have faced.
