Women make up only 25% of computer-science related jobs, according to the Pew Research Center.  Women are even less represented in engineering, making up just 14% of the workforce. This panel session will give the stage to trail blazing women who can share their challenges, career journey and what they would advise for those looking to enter this industry. Hear from two women with a STEM background on how the industry can better cater for women, especially women entrepreneurs, and how it can address challenges around retention, career progression and more.
