A sobering fact: the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics predicts that by 2018 there will be 1.4 million open technology jobs in the United States and, at the current rate of students graduating with degrees in computer science, only 61% of those openings will be filled—and just 29% of applicants will be women. The need is all the more critical when you realize that the latest advances in improving healthcare, protecting the environment, and upgrading manufacturing have come from technological innovations.
Join WISE CLT for an engaging executive panel discussion on important trends and success stories, helping to bridge the gender gap in information technology. Additionally, celebrate the successes of 20 young high school women in the Charlotte region as they are recognized as NCWIT Aspirations winners – future leaders who are bridging the gap.
