JOIN US FOR THE STREAM!
In the TEK Lounge we will stream the event from 9 to 12 and again from 13.20 to 14.20, when TEK's session "Women to the top in tech!" goes live.
Our Research Manager Susanna Bairoh presents her findings on what helps and what hinders women to get to the top in tech. Some companies have set up percentage targets for women, while some consider them unnecessary or even harmful – and what’s the role of competence? The presentation is followed by a panel discussion which approaches the subject from the point-of-view of a headhunter, a student and a board member.
TEK Lounge provides an exellent opportunity to follow the stream and share your thoughts with others - not forgetting free snacks! You can also pop in for a specific session.
HOW TO FIND THE TEK LOUNGE
The TEK Lounge is located on the third floor of the first phase of the University, left of the Street Cafe and along the corridor leading to the library.
