Professional Headshots and Networking
Welcome and Introductions
Workshop: Communicating with Presence
You’ve probably heard of “Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars” or other things like it that describe the differences in how men and women communicate. It’s not that one is better than the other but that the differences can lead to misunderstandings. Similar to speaking with people in other countries, not only words but non-verbal behaviors can have drastically different meanings based on country of origin.
During this interactive session, you’ll learn what words and gestures are undermining you and what you can do about it.
Panel: Investing in an Inclusive Future
Venture capital plays a critical role in the ability to turn ideas into businesses. Many women investors and mission driven venture capital firms are changing the dynamic of entrepreneurship and startups by shining a light on under-represented founders. This panel discusses on why inclusive investing is not just better business but a better future for all.
Panel: Working While Female

This panel features women in technology across different functional areas and stage of career having an open dialogue regarding navigating a rewarding career in technology.
