"Women in IT - Good for Business?"


The percentage of women developing and designing technology has not changed in recent years compared to other fields, including, medicine, law, and science. Why not? Should we care? The speaker will openly explore the diversity issues in the technology industry, the business impact (if any) of engaging women in engineering and IT, and the US global competitiveness as a factor of women in technology.

Our speaker, Claudia Morrell is founder and CEO for the Multinational Development of Women in Technology (MDWIT), an organization founded in 2007 and that received a Governor's Citation in 2008. She is a skilled leader with record of accomplishment in creating and directing innovative organizations and programs.
