What is Snap One Women in Technology Summit?
Less number of women working in the field of technology has always been an issue and many big organizations are working towards the eradication of this problem. Snap One Women Technology Summit is a virtual event that encourages women to pursue career in the technology industry and rise up in the leadership roles.
This year, the summit will be held on the theme: “Break the Bias”. There are two 90 minutes sessions in this summit and the registration for this event is open now.
Dawn Boland, Snap One SVP, said in an interview that a bias has been created against women that they cannot work in the technical fields. There are living proofs that women can not only work in these fields but can also prove themselves to be great leader and can make a significant impact.
Through this summit, industries and organizations will be encourages to bring in more and more women talent.
