Tech Women: Women and Innovation
Innovation is a key driver of economic growth for companies, for countries, for regions. Each year, numerous reports are issued on the most innovative companies, countries, & individuals. When it comes to those individual innovators- what names usually appear? Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Dean Kamen, Larry Page , Sergey Brin and Thomas Edison. Where are the women? Are women not innovative or are they somehow being overlooked?
This panel will look at the challenges and opportunities women encounter in being (and being recognized as) innovators. We’ll explore the issues they face, their roles in innovation teams, and the strategies they’ve used to succeed.
