About the Event

As the Nation Center for Women & Information Technology say “We are missing out on the innovations, solutions, and creations that 50% of the population could bring.”  Women are still under-represented in the STEM fields.  This month’s Innovation Economics features the Co-CEO of the Equalithons:Hack-a-thons for Equality, Marie Roker-Jones. Her company Essteem has been taking an innovative approach to closing the gap for women in technology fields and their participating companies are seeing an increase in tech innovation quality (+15%), +20% productivity, and 2x investor ROI as a result.  Come learn more about how they are doing it!
