Data, Technology, and the Global Gender Gap

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many studies and reports have demonstrated that a gender gap is pervasive and persistent in areas related to data and technology. The gap is pervasive in that it exists nearly anywhere one looks, and the gap is persistent in that it continues to exist over time, despite efforts to reduce it. After a brief introduction to the problem, this session will seek to actively engage participants and speakers, in an effort to explore recent research and to suggest new research for effectively addressing the issues.
