On 12 September 2018, CATC’s WISE programming held a “Future of Tech is Female” community event, bringing together more than 40 Charlotte-based organizations to share their collective missions and activities, and discuss the current and future needs women in technology.
Using the CATC Pillars of INSPIRE, ADVANCE and GROW, attendees participated in breakout sessions to discuss current challenges in attracting and retaining women in technology, as well as brainstorm opportunities to partner within the community to build a stronger and more robust pipeline of female talent and put more women in leadership roles.
Special thanks to the event location host, Kingsman Software; and thanks to the event sponsor, SealedAir Corporation.
Documentation below/attached includes the meeting presentation and the notes captured from each of the breakout sessions. These notes can’t do justice to the quality of the discussion and the great ideas and opportunities discussed. AND WISE encourages everyone to become part of the conversation and stay tuned for our next community event.
