Description

Under-representation of women at technology and digital conferences is a well-documented phenomenon. Drawing on her work with 300 Seconds - a movement empowering female speakers - Ann will be exploring why we need to work harder at ensuring women are given a platform to practice their presenting skills, particularly in the tech world.
