Women in Tech Virtual Conference 2020 - thank you!
Last week I had the honor to co-host the Women in Tech Virtual Conference organized by the C# Corner community. Annie Talvasto (Microsoft Finland) and I moderated the conference having discussions about important topics such as Diversity and Inclusion. We welcomed amazing female speakers from around the world, sharing their experiences and knowledge in 2 keynotes and 6 breakout sessions, with inspiring words in the welcome note from Charlotte Yarkoni, Corporate Vice President, Cloud + AI at Microsoft.
Get inspired by the Welcome Note
In the welcome note, Annie and I speak about Women in Tech, Diversity and Inclusion inspired by the impactful words by Charlotte Yarkoni. Charlotte enlightens that it's an important time for Women in Tech and those interested in getting a career in the tech industry. Diverse perspectives are very important to everything we do, they make us better, more empathetic people, result in creative problem-solving and lead to innovation.
