Studies show that only 19% of computer science majors in the United States are women. How can we change that number? Our panelists are ready to show you.

Join the 5G kab series as they discuss actionable means of empowering girls & womxn wherever they are in their tech journey.

This event will cover the importance of mentorship, opportunities for professional development, and uncover the gaps in early education that prevent womxn from pursuing computer science.

Together, we can close those gaps, and create more space for girls and womxn to succeed in tech.
