Women in Tech: Building Inclusive Products and Inspiring Careers


The people who use digital products are more diverse than ever. However, the tech industry continues to be predominately male-driven. How can women build a successful, fulfilling career in this field and help create more inclusive products? We are hosting several of Charlotte’s leading women in tech to discuss career advice, addressing gender bias in product strategy and design, and more.

As part of Charlotte Innovation Week, this event will explore:

- Why it's valuable to have diverse perspectives to drive product development
- Practical tips for preventing bias, oversights, and barriers in digital products and services
- Advice for building a career that leads to professional success and personal happiness, while avoiding or overcoming common challenges faced by women in tech
