Women In Technology Breakfast Series Background
The Women in Technology series, sponsored by Accenture, is composed of three 90 minute breakfast sessions at each one of the
HITEC Summits. These sessions offer a safe space to share personal and professional stories, seek advice and gain insights
into progressing a career in technology.
In 2016 the participants developed solutions to tackle the dwindling number of women entering the technology field.
After exploring the ways HITEC women came to work in technology they discovered that the majority took a non-traditional
route. Using this insight as a jumping off point, the participants formed different strategies which will be put in practice in
their own organizations to cultivate paths for more women to overcome obstacles and consider a technology career.
We could not be more excited to be involved in this work, and look forward to seeing all of our HITEC women come together to
celebrate the special talents we all bring to technology in 2017!
