Times have changed for women in the workforce. Or have they? While women in the United States earn 60 percent of today's degrees, they are, on average, paid just 79 percent of men's earnings across all professions, a gap of 21 percent. Although women in business represent 52 percent of all professional level positions, they represent less than 15 percent of executive officers and less than 5 percent of CEOs in Fortune 500 companies. Women in technology management careers are pushing to beat these odds and become better represented in leadership roles. This panel will address topics such as the wage and leadership gap, and balancing women's responsibilities inside and outside of the work place. Learn how approaches to politics, communication and negotiations can be used to overcome bias and barriers. Our panel of women technology management leaders will offer insights, strategies and advice for other women hoping to advance their professions in technology management. Men are welcome to attend and will also benefit from the panel’s career advice and exposure to these issues.
