Session Overview

Book this session

It is no secret that technology is having a diversity crisis. Despite significant effort and diversity initiatives, technology is still perceived as a predominantly white, male, middle-class industry. But this wasn't always the case - in 1943, computing was dominated by women. What happened?

Join Antonia Forster, XR Technical Specialist, for a data-driven exploration of the gender gap:- why it came about, how it affects the bottom line, how AI and machine-learning reinforce bias, and how we can use evidence-based strategies to combat it.

Once you have booked the session and created the meeting link, you can invite the audience using the QNA session description from our website. You might also want to ask them to think of questions upfront already!

That is up to you! However, the purpose of the QNA sessions is to inspire teams, so we suggest that you invite your team(s) for learning from these experts and covering a lot of questions on the chosen topic.

The QNA sessions will not be recorded, unless you agree on this specifically with the expert.

QNA sessions last 45 minutes in total. The intro talk usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes, and the rest of the time is spent on Q&A. 

Yes, the QNA sessions are online only. 

That is up to you! But the more the merrier, so we would suggest that you invite your team to learn from these experts together and cover a lot of questions on a certain topic.

After your booking you will be asked to provide the meeting link to us (Leqture). We will add the meeting link to the calender invitation that has been sent to you and the expert.
