WCN Professionals welcomes you to join us for a webinar with IBM and the Women Leadership Council (WLC).
A woman can do anything. Even tech. Regardless, majority of employees in the tech industry are men. Why? Have humans made this decision? Does AI play a part in the inequality? Talking to you about the prejudice against women in the tech industry, we have Mervi Airaksinen, Country General Manager of IBM Finland, drawing experiences from her own journey in the world of technology.
Presenting the inequality created by AI technology, we have Marko Viksten, Technical Sales Data & AI Portfolio at IBM, who has extensive knowledge on Data & AI, Data Science, Mathematical Optimization and Natural Language Processing. In addition, we will present the organizing parties: the Women Leadership Council (WLC) and the Women’s Career Network (WCN) as well as the collaboration IBM does with universities.
Some of the topics we will learn about:
• Why is the tech industry still dominated by men?
• Does AI contribute to inequality and how?
• The story of WLC: How the Women Leadership Council empowers women within IBM and beyond.
When? Thursday 26th of November at 16:00 (UTC +2).
For who? All female business & law students and professionals.
Please notice that this event will be held in English.
