The range of consumers for modern products and services is more diverse than ever - but tech and other emerging industries themselves, unfortunately, aren’t. Creating workforce diversity and inclusiveness is hard work, but for the next generation of women who design tech, it’ll be worth it.

For our panel we’ve invited 4 brilliant women who are thriving in the current environment and are paving the way into innovative industries for other women and minorities to follow. We are coming together to talk about the fundamental topics of how to get into tech as a woman-designer, how to design innovative products and services for a broad range of consumers, and ultimately, how to design a new world for the next generation of diverse professionals.
