JW Marriott
Room 303-304
110 E 2nd St


Meet Monique Morrow, a globally recognized trailblazer for women in tech and CTO/Evangelist, New Frontiers at Cisco. Learn how her efforts to create an “intrapreneurial” culture helped her attract and engage some of the best and brightest minds in engineering -- including women who once considered abandoning corporate positions to seek more expansive opportunities elsewhere. She joins IEEE Women in Engineering’s Nita Patel to discuss leadership, the future of women in tech and engineering and the role empowerment, smarts, tenacity and hard work play in driving success. Part of the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series.
