Trends & Transformation: Women Hold Up Half the Sky

Women make up half the world’s population and drive the majority of purchasing decisions in households. However, they are still underrepresented in the workforce, especially in technology and leadership positions.

There has been some groundbreaking – and back breaking – work done to close this gap, but we still need to accelerate the pace of this change.

Please join Rachel Mushahwar, Intel Vice President and General Manager of US Enterprise, Government, and Cloud Industries Sales to learn more about her career journey as a technical female leader and what we can all do to go faster and support, develop, and champion women in the workplace.

Here’s What Attendees of the Live Event Had to Say

  • “Very insightful and necessary for next level career opportunities.”

  • “Way more than I anticipated, eye-opening, mind-blowing, you choose the word. I loved the speaker’s balance between the scale of the challenges and the potential for overcoming them.”
  • “Rachel tells a compelling point of view and places it in everyone’s common context such that the debate is put aside so that a focus on improvement and change can prevail.”
  • “I wish my Millennial nieces and nephews were privy to this seminar.”
  • “This was my first class and very worthwhile. My whole career has been in the tech industry and I have been putting my career on hold to care for my husband after an accident and his parents… so for about two years I have been a caregiver and honestly just taking a break from corporate life… it has been so refreshing… now I am eager to get back to the workforce and this topic was on my mind as I figure out what to pursue.”
  • “I appreciate everyone in your organization. I have been supported by your team and currently getting ready for my next move and you give me a sense of empowerment to rock it anywhere I go. Thank you!”
