Tech like a girl
Women have had a long, mostly forgotten history in the tech field, and have suffered a decline in both representation and support as the technical field has grown. Kristy’s “Tech Like A Girl” summarizes the unique contributions of women to the tech field and studies the decline of women in tech. She will go into the trends and societal pressures that have led to 56% of women in a technical career leaving that career mid-way, and the overwhelming male slant of today’s tech industry from an insider’s perspective, as well as offer options and insights to invite women back into Tech, while challenging the audience to act immediately with the new information. Her unique perspective on gender bias in the tech field, combined with her vulnerable communication style, allows the audience to communicate without defensiveness, promoting full engagement without reservation.
