C4Q presents HackFemme, a conference that equips future tech leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to support women’s success in the tech industry.
Tech is Facing a Massive Gender Gap
Only 15% of women in top tech companies work as engineers. Even as women pursue higher education at record numbers, only 18% of computer science college graduates and 35% of coding school graduates are women. This gender gap is costing tech companies talent and profit: tech companies with more women in management have 34% higher returns.
HackFemme will feature a dynamic set of actionable panels such as Overcoming Industry Challenges and Becoming a Champion. In addition HackFemme will provide hands-on workshops, lead by industry leaders, such as Negotiation 101, Unexpected Roadblocks, The Importance of a Personal Brand, and Rise Up.
