Sponsored by: Women in Big Data Summit, taking place in April 2013 as part of the overall Big Data Innovation Summit, discussing the unique challenges faced by women in this industry.
How can women working in Big Data challenge the stereotypes they are faced with in a predominantly male dominated environment? How can women inspire the next generation of female leaders working in Big Data, whilst raising awareness of the specific challenges that they will encounter?
These are just a few of the topics that will be addressed at the Women in Big Data Summit taking place at the Westin St. Francis, San Francisco April 11 & 12, hosted by IE.- Innovation Enterprise. Running as part of the multi-track Big Data Innovation Summit, females leading Big Data initiatives will come together to share their challenges and best practices.
“There are a countless number of Big Data summits that female executives can attend,” said Michaela Jeffery Morrison, International Events Director for IE.- Innovation Enterprise. “What sets this summit apart is that it is a unique opportunity to learn directly from women who have broken through the glass ceiling in their industries.”
Combining keynote presentations with interactive workshops and panel sessions, this summit is the ideal platform for women working in Big Data to come together to explore the innovations in place to overcome the challenges that they face.
Keynote speakers include:
- Director, Digital Communications, US Dept of Health & Human Services
