Event Description

On the heels of International Women’s Day (March 8, 2024), Women & Hi Tech invites you to a panel discussion focused on improving and increasing diversity and gender inclusion in the Indiana STEM community, "Operation ALLTM - Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress” on Wednesday, March 13.

According to the United Nations, achieving gender equality and women’s well-being in all aspects of life is more crucial than ever if we want to create prosperous economies and a healthy planet. However, we are facing a key challenge: the alarming $360 billion annual deficit in gender-equality measures by 2030.

Through better understanding of our gender biases, together we can lead as allies in helping to advance women in their STEM careers and build more inclusive, innovative, and fulfilling workplaces.

This event is open to ALL (members, non-members, male allies, friends, supporters of Women & Hi Tech, etc.).

Women & Hi Tech will facilitate a robust discussion with a panel of male allies who will speak to their experiences and share perspectives on supporting women in STEM, traversing topics such as inclusion, promotion, advancement, sponsorship, mentorship, feedback, challenging people equally, and how allies in leadership and management positions can support and promote gender equality in the workplace.

Attendees will walk away with new perspectives and actionable steps on how to serve as allies in the workplace.

This event will be hosted by the Event Sponsor, Sweetwater, at their location on the west side of Fort Wayne (5501 US Hwy 30 W).
