February 07, 2019  ·  AHEAD HQ

In this discussion, our panel will discuss the current landscape of women in technology and how male allies can support gender equality in the workplace. While this is an open forum, our panelists will touch on subjects ranging from the importance of making time for mentorship and amplifying female colleagues' voices, to using more inclusive language and leading by example within your own organization. This event is open to all genders, and all topics and questions are welcome. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is everyone's job, so please come with an open mind and a willingness to share respectful thoughts on the subject.
