Panel Discussion – (Has affirmative action had the desired effects for women in technology?)

This is an event targeted at university students and the working class. The aim of this event is to:

  • Address the day to day tech related issues that they face at home/work/school.
  • Share ideas and information on various tech tools or tech-hacks that might help the next person.
