PROGRAM

    • Frannie Matthews, President & CEO, Colorado Technology Association
  • Beth Comstock’s career has taken her from storyteller to chief marketer to corporate Vice President to author. Through it all, Beth has had a front seat to innovation and disruption in her nearly three decades at GE. As Chief Marketing Officer and then Vice Chair of Innovation at GE, she led efforts to accelerate new growth, develop digital and clean-energy futures, seed new businesses and enhance brand value. As President of Integrated Media at NBC Universal, she oversaw TV ad revenue and digital media efforts, including the early development of Hulu.com. Beth is driven to understand what’s next, navigate change and help others do the same.

    • Beth Comstock, Author, Imagine it Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change; former Vice Chair of Innovation, GE 
  • Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have great potential to accelerate and improve many aspects of our businesses and lives. However, there’s a scarcity of women among machine learning researchers and developers, and the people who are developing the vision and technology behind emerging technologies such as AI don’t resemble the society their inventions are transforming. This panel will explore some of the best use cases for machine learning and AI, what’s next for these emerging technologies, and what we can do to ensure the process by which these technologies are being developed is inclusive.

    • Moderated by Kayla Andersen, Manager – Data & Analytics, CapTech Ventures
    • Sherry Comes, Managing Director & Conversational AI Practice Lead, Deloitte Consulting
    • Zeenat Patrawala, Partner Development – Google Brain, Google
    • Beth Rudden, Distinguished Engineer – Cognitive Science, IBM
  • The Mindful Moment offers a few minutes to pause and be grounded in the present. This exercise also provides the opportunity to set intentions for the event and beyond!

    • Shana Cordon, Founder & Lead Coach, The Moxy Lab
  • Working in technology has seemingly unlimited potential. Hear from a diverse group of women in technology on their journey in tech and how they continue to navigate their growth.

    CTA/Galvanize Scholarship Winner Update
    In 2018, we presented the CTA/Galvanize Women in Technology Scholarship to a woman in pursuit of a career in technology who demonstrated strong character and passion for what a future in tech can offer. We thank all those who donated to this important cause.

    We are thrilled to invite our scholarship recipient Sonja Chacon back to share her story.

  • Don’t let a fear of negotiating get you stuck! In her talk, Elizabeth will guide you through her exclusive and effective system, which will leave you feeling prepared, confident and excited to negotiate for everything you want – in business and in life. By the end of the session, you will embrace three essential tips you can immediately implement to accomplish your goal! This session is an opportunity for connections and personal and professional reflection and will include small group workshops and discussions led by our Women in Technology Luminaries.

    • Elizabeth Suarez, Coach, Negotiation Unleashed; Author, The Art of Getting Everything
  • Our Women in Technology Luminaries are leaders in our technology community who will facilitate table discussions throughout the day. Use this time to reflect on the event topics, connect with your fellow attendees and learn from your Luminary. 

  • The Mindful Moment offers a few minutes to pause and be grounded in the present. This exercise also provides the opportunity to set intentions for the event and beyond!

    • Shana Cordon, Founder & Lead Coach, The Moxy Lab
  • The current state of diversity in tech is lacking. The 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) predicts as many as 1.8 million IT jobs could be unfilled by 2022. The tech talent gap is a challenge, and diversity can provide the solution. Within an organization, a diverse workforce can provide tangible results for your organization including increased innovation. This panel will feature female technology leaders – and our male allies – who are leading the way for a more inclusive technology community in Colorado.
