Abstract

Studies suggest women dropout of college and leave the workforce due to their family, finances, and military duty. However, these women interested in (re-)entering the tech fields can be the largest untapped talent pool that may fulfill the needs of the future workforce. In this session, five passionate women share their experiences with creating initiatives in emerging technologies for women.
