    Event Description:

    For the third year in a row, Kansas City landed the no. 2 spot on Smart Asset’s “Best Cities for Women in Tech” list. Of the factors analyzed, KC stood out for its nearly non-existent industry pay gap. Yet, Smart Asset found our city falls short when it comes to filling the growing number of tech jobs with women. 

     

    KC Tech Council and Athena League have joined forces to find out why. 

     

    Join us for an intimate discussion and dive into the trends of the industry in our region. The KC Tech Council will present findings of its just-released KC Tech Specs industry report, followed by a dynamic conversation with regional tech trailblazers and innovating pioneers. Find out how they found their way to the top in a sometimes-challenging industry, and learn how we as a community can inspire more women to enter the field of tech.
