As a father of a young lady myself and a 17+ year career in the technology industry in leadership roles, I'm a firm believer that giving young ladies access to female role models at an early age as a source of inspiration is key if we are to overcome the challenges we are facing in the tech industry today.

As a mother of 2 young ladies myself and a 14+ year career in the technology industry in leadership roles, having faced both the challenges and the successes as a woman in the technology industry I not only wanted to share my journey with young ladies but also provide the opportunity to connect my fellow women in technology with the next generation that will lead this field.
