How Motherhood is Shaping the Future of Tech

We often hear about "mommy brain" and are presented of images of haggard, exhausted women trying to balance a soul sucking career with the incessant demands of motherhood. But look closer and you will see that mothers are actually driving innovation in tech and beyond, inventing creative applications for existing platforms, new ways of working, and a more just and inclusive society for all. This conversation will explore the ways that mothers are already leveraging their identities for the greater good, and what the future of tech could look like if the narrative shifted to acknowledge their power.
