Abstract

Studies suggest women dropout of college and leave the workforce due to their family, finances, and military duty. However, women interested in (re-)entering the tech fields can be the largest untapped talent pool that may fulfill the needs of the future computing workforce. In this panel, five passionate women will share their experiences with identifying the challenges for women to re-enter emerging technology professions and the role of industry-academic relationship in facilitating such initiatives in order to develop future relevant initiatives.
