They’ll speak about their experiences as women in the tech industry, the challenges they face, and how they thrive in a traditionally male-dominated culture.

Speakers include:

  •         Emily Baugher, managing director, HCL Software
  •         Amanda Fennell, chief security officer, Relativity
  •         Michele Bousquet, CybSec entrepreneur and podcaster
  •         Kate Forster, IT administrator

Attendees will also learn more about Tulane SoPA’s Women in Technology Mentorship Program from Tulane SoPA Associate Dean Ilianna Kwaske. This program is geared toward helping women build meaningful personal and professional relationships with female tech mentors. The first 50 registrants who attend the event will receive signed copies of the book Women in Tech: Take Your Career to the Next Level with Practical Advice and Inspiring Stories by Tarah Wheeler.
