Tweet the panel live! #aowit
In the US and Canada, less than 23% of the technology industry workforce is made up by women, 6% of tech leadership roles are made up by women, and 8% of tech startups are owned by female entrepreneurs.
Support women in technology and female entrepreneurs by joining us for this Women In Tech panel session. We will ask why the panel got into tech, the challenges they have faced, the opportunities that have come out of it, plus create a general discussion around how we can get more females into the technology industry.

Pascale Audette – Co-Founder and CEO at Hyper Hippo Productions
Charity Gerbrandt – Principal Creative Lead at Disney Interactive
