Across the nation, women in government technology are raising their voices to build a government fueled by a diversity of perspectives. Over the last 20 years, more women are not only sitting at the table, but are also thriving as change agents in the drive to bring technology modernization and innovation to support their agency’s mission.

This annual panel will discuss the path to successfully leading in challenging times. The discussion will highlight how gender-diversity in our Federal workforce is critical to solving the country’s IT transformation issues today and in the future.
