Women In Technology 2017

Building on the inaugural event from 2016 the 2017 Festival featured the popular Women In Technology event held on Wednesday 24th May in the G Hotel.  The afternoon saw Ann O’Dea CEO and Co-founder Silicon Republic and Founder of Inspire Fest, Dr. Niamh Shaw STEAM Artist, Rev. Geraldine Bown and Prof. Anne Scott VP Equality and Diversity NUI Galway explore females challenging traditional norms in the workplace.

Some of the topics discussed included:

  • Are empowered women in business finally being recognised?
  • As women’s lives become more balanced and their presence more common, are they finally receiving the recognition they fully deserve?

A lively panel debate was held to wrap up the event.
