Only a quarter of computing jobs are held by women today. Even worse, that’s down from a year ago. Only 5.2% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women. So how are data and digital driven jobs catalyzing change in the technology sector for women? Learn how women are using data-driven decision making to get C-Suite jobs and lead digital initiatives at their companies. Access to big data and the ability to drive business outcomes based on analytics has leveled the playing field, empowering more women to rise to the top and break gender stereotypes.
