On September 16, Dallas SWE joined Light Reading at the NFV Everywhere Americas event at the Westin Galleria in Dallas for the Women in Comms breakfast! We enjoyed tasty food and compelling discussion from panelist members Nancy Green (Healthcare Global Lead, Verizon Enterprise Solutions), Brooks McCorcle (President, AT&T Partner Solutions), Monique Hayward (Director, Outbound Marketing, Network Platforms Group, Intel Corporation), and Bita Milanian (Senior Vice President, Marketing Communications, Genband) moderated by Sarah Thomas (Editorial Operations Director, Light Reading).
The group highlighted the expected need for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) workers in the next decade, the importance of including women in those technical and leadership roles, and their passion for encouraging the next generation of girls to develop their interests in these fields despite societal pressure to move away from STEAM as they enter middle school and high school. Communications technology has changed our societies and cultures around the globe so it’s important for teams designing the devices that connect us to mirror those societies and cultures!
Thanks again to Light Reading for inviting Dallas SWE to this event! Enjoy some photos from the event below.
