Gender Inequality in the Tech Industry (hosted by SnapChat)

September 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

27206180418-23419843

Gender inequality is an enduring, complicated issue within the tech industry. Even well into the 21st century, positions continue to be implicitly assigned according to specified gender roles, with much of the economic and political power tilted against women and the LGBTIQA communities. This Meetup serves to start the conversation on several common topics and offer an opportunity of engagement and expression to those who feel underrepresented and excluded. 


Speakers:


Farnaz Azmoodeh – Director of Monetization 


Claire Reinert – Release Engineering

This event is sponsored by Snapchat, Galvanize, and Women Who Code.

6:30 Doors open – beverages and snacks provided


7:00 Moderated tech talk begins


7:30 Open floor for Q&A from audience

8:30 Event concludes

  • Debunking the Myth of Masculinity and Success

  • Breaking the Glass Ceiling of Leadership
