Laurie Carey (CEO, We Connect The Dots)


Laurie Carey discusses how as a women involved in the field of technology she was often the only woman and this has led her to help create communities of women in IT so that they could learn from each other. She talks about how IT products are often built by men for men when 80% of decisions around technology purchases are made by women and the products often don’t meet their needs. To bring women into technology an effort needs to be made that lets women know that technology brings opportunity and skills that can change the world for the better and do the kinds of things that matter to women.
