This episode of AZTechCast looks at the incredible women revolutionizing our lives, Arizona and the world, through technology. Much has been written about male domination of the tech world. Many tech companies are run by men, and female role models are few and far between. And while Arizona’s technology sector is booming, women make up just 30% of the state’s tech employment. Clearly, much more needs to be done to advance women in technology from the classroom to the boardroom.
Hosted by Phoenix Business RadioX, and moderated by Council Vice President Karla Morales, a distinguished panel of female tech leaders joined Arizona Technology Council CEO Steve Zylstra to discuss their experiences in the tech industry, share their stories, lessons learned on how they got to where they are today, give advice on some of the issues to look out for, as well as discuss the women who have inspired them.
For the video podcast, Alexi Venneri, the co-founder and CEO of Digital Air Strike, joined Heather Monthie, Principal Cybersecurity Architect of Honeywell Aerospace, and Ivonne May, Director with Raytheon Technologies.
