On this episode of the Intelligent Workplace Podcast, I explore a bit of a broader issue. Diversity in the workplace is something that all companies strive for, as it allows them to incorporate a broader range of perspectives within the business. It could promote faster problem solving, better innovation, increased creativity, and a more engaged workforce. But it's not an easy task, especially in the technology field.
In this episode, I focus on one of the major challenges for employers in the tech space, seeking to diversify their workforce and that is attracting women into the field. To join me in this discussion, I invited the president of the Women In Tech Network along, Christine Bongard. The WIT Network is a community of professional men and women who encourage and assist women and girls to pursue careers in the technology sector, enable women to attain leadership positions and advance their careers and support female entrepreneurs.
I recorded this interview a few weeks ago when Christine and I were both in attendance at the Microsoft Inspire event in Las Vegas. Enjoy the conversation.
