Attend their talk if you want to learn what kind of benefits come from making a digital product accessible and inclusive for all.

Disrupting the Status Quo: Female Leaders in Tech

Today’s tech industry is all about #WomeninTech, there’s more inclusiveness when it comes to women studying engineering and being on tech positions. However, there’s still very few tech leaders who are female. Tech world has a lot to do in that regard, which is why during SXSW 2019 Billie Sue Chafins, VP Software Development at Hulu and Felicia Yue, Senior Manager at Amazon Prime Video will share how they approach their roles as leaders of (predominantly male) teams and talk about the challenges they face every day, as well as their mentoring techniques.
