by Rose Shumba, Stephanie Keller-bottom, Monique Morrow, Velvet Johnson,

Summary : The media has been revealing the disappointing performance of major technology companies (Google, Facebook); the decline of women computer engineers in universities; and the not surprising positive performance of Fortune 500 companies who have at least three women on the Board of Directors. This panel will discuss programs that are addressing the challenges that continue to make it difficult for women in technology and sciences, how more involvement of women will improve collaboration, enterprise performance, innovation and commercialization, and how the increase in women role models holding positions of influence will transform the industry.
