Sunday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom A
Austin Convention Center

Is Silicon Valley biased against women? Why are fewer women graduating with a technical degree (12% today vs 37% in 1984)? Why aren’t more women rising in the tech ranks or starting businesses? Why should you care?

Join Sandy Carter, founder of the Super Women's Group (38K strong), Chairperson of the Board of WITI, and voted Forbes 10 Most Powerful Women in Tech, and Elizabeth Caudle, Director of Girls Who Code, as they discuss why this matters, how innovation will benefit, and how to foster an interest in tech. Learn why women need to take risks and embrace failure to give them the courage to crash through the glass ceiling or start a new business.

Sandy and Elizabeth will share a recent research report on “Advancing Women” as well as their own experiences and advice with 5 career hacks to help you get ahead, because talent is not enough.

Whether you are a woman or man, parent or business owner, this is a must-see session.
