Staying a Woman in Tech

Getting into the tech industry is one thing, but staying in is quite another. Many articles have been written about women leaving the tech field because of “a hostile culture, a sense of isolation or lack of a clear career path” (see http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-women-tech-20150222-story.html).
In this panel we’ll talk with a few professionals in the tech field who are speaking from different times in their career path and find out how they managed to stick with the tech industry.
