Women: Disruptors of Education

Our panelists are challenging businesses to evolve at the speed of technology and drive education for the future. Hear from some of the top thinkers, game changers and risk takers in edtech today to gain their perspective on what's new, what's coming and what's changing. The panelists have moved video learning from VHS to online libraries, served to set the global agenda on education and technology, advised some of the most promising young education startups, all with eyes set firmly on the future of the industry and the rise of rich media-based education. The group of women will discuss what leadership in learning looks like now vs. then and how it will continue to transform in the coming years.

Our panelists work at the intersection of new media and education. The panelists will look towards the full convergence of these two roads and the opportunities that lie ahead for the entrepreneurs and risk-takers that can harness the power of each.
