Empowering Women in Tech from Bletchley to Burundi

Mar 13, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Sue Black's life is a lesson in perseverance. Having overcome poverty and domestic violence to become a tech luminary, Sue founded the U.K.s first online network for women in tech, and has spent 25 years empowering women in underserved communities. Harnessing traditional and social media to galvanize celebrities, corporations and the public at large, Sue helped raise millions to repair Bletchley Park, home of the WWII codebreakers, and fought to win recognition for the 8,000 women who worked there. Now, she offers insight and inspiration to other women wanting to forge their own paths to successful tech careers and tips for established tech leaders and companies looking to attract more women to the field.
