STEM Womxn Driving Innovation

I can’t speak for the other panelists, but I had a terrific time on this panel! We dove deep, talking about bettering outcomes for those underprivileged, what a diverse team really look like, our stories of persistence and resilience and how we’re making space for ourselves in these times to continue to stand out.

I am bold, and I’m not ashamed of it.

Honored to be a participant in an amazing discussion from top female leaders in the innovation and digital transformation space.

Here’s the breakdown of each question: 

[06:19] What does digital transformation mean to you? 

[11:00] How do you feel about innovation, digital transformation and how it impacts change, diversity and injustices in our current landscape? And how does tech play a role? Do you think tech should even play a role in this arena? 

[17:00] Do we think we will get to the point where the term digital transformation is being used in the same manner across the board? When is too much digital transformation too much?
