On June 4, Slate Studio joined with Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, General Assembly host Women & Girls In Tech: #TheFutureOfWork, which brought together 20 speakers, 135 attendees, and over a dozen partners to elevate the discourse around the women executives of today, and the future leaders of tomorrow. Thanks to our friend’s at Inc.com for capturing 7 Strong, Independent Takeaways From the Women in Tech Conference.
“As technologists, there are so many women that have influenced us in our profession - Radia Perlman, Carol Shaw, Susan Kare, Heddie Lamar; we want to continue to be impacted by the next generation of women leaders in the tech space.” - Ethan Grey Managing Director & Chief Strategy Officer, Slate Studio,
When thinking about the types of events we wanted to host this year, we knew our goal was to host honest and authentic conversations exploring the state of media, entertainment and technology. As Ethan Grey our Managing Director & Chief Strategy Officer put it, "We looked around the room during meetings with tech companies, and more people looked like us (men) than (women), and we felt we needed to do something to change that.”
It has been a historical month so far for women and girls. We are proud to have been a small part of it.
