Work & Flexibility: Why Women Must Lead the Way
The last year has seen an explosion of examples of women helping women—in business. From women founding companies at 1.5 times the rate of men, to businesses specifically focused on helping women navigate their careers and build their own companies, to the national conversation around workplace flexibility, leaning in and leaning out! It’s an important trend that seems to be hitting its stride, with the potential to tip the scales toward a flexible workplace culture that will ultimately allow ALL businesses -- both small and large -- hire and retain top talent.
Presenters Stacey Delo, founder of maybrooks.com, a community for working moms, and Diana Rothschild, founder of NextKids, the first co-work space to include childcare, will share inspiring examples of how women in tech are breaking the rules to do interesting work and still have a life (!), and how the tech industry is poised to lead the rest of corporate America in this effort.
