Women, leadership and technology for good: how do we unleash women’s power? The technology for social good space is growing and empowering women changemakers to tackle some of the biggest social issues of our time is a must. This space requires a strong pipeline of talent — women who are creative and fluent in business and technology and who also understand the social impact space.
