The statistics don't lie: while women make up 50% of the workforce, they're only about 25% of the IT workforce, and when you look at upper-level management, the numbers are no better. The proportion of women who go into technology has decreased over the last few decades, with a lack of job advancement pinned as one of the reasons women are dropping out of the STEM pipeline. So how can women build a career in this environment?

This main-stage session will feature a roundtable discussion from women who have excelled in communications technology careers. They'll discuss how to forge a career path, how they handle obstacles, identify opportunities, and build on their goals. You'll come away with an understanding of how to shape your own career, and how to maximize or create your opportunities within the enterprise communications industry, and how to be more effective in creating a productive and successful workplace for yourself and your colleagues.
