Limited Capacity filling up

In a world where many thousands of open technology jobs are unfilled and where talent is queen, are we doing everything we can to make tech accessible to everyone? The largest un-tapped demographic for technology talent is women, but what can we do to bring more women into technology and engineering?

Dr. Patricia Colberg from University of Idaho leads a panel of female technologists through a conversation about our successes and failures in bringing more women to technology. Panelists include Alecia Hoobing of Women Innovators, Meredith Ganz of VYNYL and Nilab Mousa of Clearwater.
