Talk: THINK Big, THINK Diverse, THINK Forward

Tactics and actions to encourage wider participation in tech 

Less than three percent of young female students identify a career in technology as their first choice. How are we ever going to achieve a diverse workforce, and bridge the gender gap that persists in technology careers? 

Don’t panic - this can all still change! Learn how even small events can have a lasting impact in encouraging more women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers, and explore how you can get involved to actively make a difference to the diversity of the tech industry.

THINK is the famous one-word slogan established by IBM’s founder over a century ago as a clarion call to all employees to improve quality and productivity.

Speaker Grace Jansen is a developer advocate at IBM, working with Open Liberty and Reactive Platform. She builds proofs of concept, demos and sample applications, and writes guides and tutorials to help guide users through technologies and products. 

Grace joined IBM with a degree in Biology, and enjoys bringing a varied perspective to her projects, using her knowledge of biological systems to simplify complex software patterns and architectures.
