Join us for New York Tech’s Eighth Annual She.E.O. Discussion to honor, cultivate, and strengthen women with whom we work, innovate, and motivate. This year’s theme is Embracing Equity. When we embrace equity, we embrace diversity and we embrace inclusion. We embrace equity to forge harmony and unity, and to help drive success for all. Equality is the goal, and equity is the means to get there. Through the process of equity, we can reach equality.
