Join WITI at SEMICON West!

The Women in Technology Forum explores the changing workplace environment and how mobile connectivity has transformed the way we live and work, in ways that established technology and science industries must embrace, in order to be competitive on the world stage. Hiring women at all levels in the workplace makes good business sense. Yet some say that the older the industry is, the harder is it to change the working environment, and, more specifically, to increase the number of women employed at executive positions.

Forum presenters will examine issues about women in the workforce. They will share research on industry hiring and performance trends that prove Fortune 500 companies, with women placed in senior management positions, have received significant ROI across the enterprise, and especially where innovation is a key component of the business strategy. Business leaders will also address some of the myths and stereotypes held about women in the workplace today. Gender-based stereotyping is alive and well in the enterprise and it is perpetuated by both men and women. Organizations must take proactive steps to eradicate stereotypic bias. The Women in Tech Forum is open to women and men. Join us!
