On Wednesday, Feb. 24, D CEO will host four of the region’s leading thinkers, pioneers, and executives paving the way for more women in STEM during a virtual morning panel discussion.
Presented in partnership with the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, the goal of the multiplatform program is to support the representation of women in technology, give a megaphone to leaders to share their stories, and share ideas for building a platform for the future.
The candid conversation will address what’s needed to close the Dallas-Fort Worth gender gap in STEM, with insights from those in the business community who are leading the way. Participants include:
