Technology has an image problem. Women are consuming technology but not creating it. Women are leaving the technology sector at twice the rate of men. The number of young women studying technology related subjects has declined every year for the past 10 years. This is increasingly weakening the effectiveness of organizations and workplace learning teams.
In this timely keynote, Belinda Parmar will explore the societal influences that function as blinders to how girls and young women look at technology. She will explore the expectations that are coded into our perceptions as children and how they shape young women’s assumptions of what “working with tech” means, discuss the importance of technology in the context of work, and examine the types of technology skills that are critical in tomorrow’s workplace.
