On January 21st, we heard from two panels made up of women in technology and female entrepreneurs at a Women In Tech event at the Streaming Cafe in Kelowna. We asked why the panel got into tech, the challenges they have faced, the opportunities that have come out of it, plus created a general discussion around how we can get more females into the technology industry.
Laurel Douglas, CEO at Women’s Enterprise Centre, moderated.
The first panel was made up of:
Charity Gerbrandt – Principal Creative Lead at Disney Interactive
Anne Marie Kirby – CEO, CoreHealth Technologies
Barbara Marcolin – Assistant Professor of Information Systems at UBC Okanagan
Tracy Medve – President of Kelowna Flightcraft
