Columbia College Reunion
It’s no secret that the tech industry could benefit from increased diversity, and that it has an important role to play in reducing gender inequality while empowering women to influence and be leaders in this dynamic, fast-growing sector. At this panel, you’ll hear firsthand about women’s experiences with issues like the gender pay gap and a lack of C-suite diversity, plus you’ll learn how you can help improve the talent acquisition process. Featuring panelists Tiffany Dockery CC’09, product manager at Instagram; Jenny Fielding BC'94, managing director, Techstars; Heather Folsom CC'99, product manager at Google; and Sadia Latifi CC'09, head of content strategy, experiences, at Airbnb; moderated by Lucy Lee CC'94, IT lead & procurement lead at Equinox. There will be opportunities to network with fellow alumni before and after the panel.
