Breaking through Barriers: Climbing the Tech Ladder

Join WITI, Constellation Mutual and Randstad Technologies as we bring together influencers and decision makers for a collaborative discussion to reframe how we think and what we do about the gender and diversity gap in the tech sector.

We will explore ways to advance women of all levels, backgrounds by addressing leadership and empowerment, creating a culture of diversity and inclusion, and tangible next steps you can take action on.

Men are always welcomed at all WITI events!
