Tech companies continue to have a staggering lack of diversity from the board room to coders, to analysts and marketers. The low number of women working in tech isn't just a concern for companies worried about the image problem of a male-dominated workforce, it's also a business challenge. It's necessary for companies to attract highly-qualified women to help fill these positions as diversity of thought, people and cultures creates better teams, products and strengthens financial performance. The result is a diverse, inclusive culture that welcomes all points of view and creates a great place to work and a successful organization.

We know the issues but how is it that tech companies in the Boston area can move the conversation to action? One way is for tech companies to launch their own women's initiative to help understand the issues, provide support and guidance, celebrate diversity and create a culture that attracts, develops and retains female talent.

Join us to network and discuss how other leading tech organization are launching their own women's initiatives. You'll come away learning:

  • Why and how to launch a women's initiative within your company
  • Best practices that achieve results
  • What results you can expect from a successful group


Moderator:

  • Tracy Cashman, Senior Vice President & Partner, Information Technology Search, Winter Wyman


Speakers:

  • Marcy Axelrad, Global Senior Director of Talent Operations, Wayfair
  • Danielle Herzberg, Director of Business Development, HubSpot
  • Amber Jackson, Manager, Technical Recruiting, athenahealth
