When it comes to women in leadership positions, statistics show that about 15% of C-suite Execs are women and about 50% are managers. So by definition, most employees are led by male-dominated executive teams.

What is it like in today's day and age to be a female entrepreneur? How do you successfully launch a tech startup or co-found a company as a woman in the industry? As the leader of such organizations, how can we continue to decrease the amount of gender imbalance and increase employee morale and retention? Tune in to our live, dynamic panel discussion moderated by Vinita Rathi, Co-founder and CEO of Systango and former Executive Director & VP at Goldman Sachs for a look into company culture and success from a female entrepreneur point of view.
HR leaders who want a seat at the executive "strategy planning" table need to become Human Resources critical thinkers who align their people plans (HR strategy) with the strategic goals and profitability of the company. (Look at any HR discussion forum, and you’ll find some version of this question: How can HR get a “seat at the table” and become a strategic business partner?) But most HR leaders find themselves occupied in a problem-solving role as employee reactionaries; "we need a new hire"... "we need disciplinary help" "We have a problem employee"... "We need our managers to get training on the new compliance laws." Far too often, people-pleasing HR leaders fail to cultivate the mindset necessary for creating strategy that adds value to the overall organizational success. This not only stems from traditional HR expectations which focus on people, compliance, and problems but also from HR leaders not managing their own strategic value and intentionally building their department and initiatives on a profitability mindset. Companies that want to ensure future success will look to HR to furnish better succession plans, more effective methods of retaining employees, programs to improve employee engagement, and refined performance management and training processes. (If they don’t find what they need from HR, they will reduce budgets, outsource, and shift responsibilities to other service departments.) HR departments won’t see improved budgets or more power and responsibilities until there’s a shift in HR mindset and a focus on HR Strategy that aligns with business needs.
This relaxed chat addresses how HR leaders can earn that seat at the table by focusing on profitability, innovation, and the growth of the company.

This is where VR is going to come in and disrupt entrenched competition in the digital landscape.

Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction.
As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction.
The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual
3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether?
Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space.
In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:
What is Augmented Construction
Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry

IDEA was passed in 1975 making schools national leaders in providing equal services for the disabled community. However, today, over 40 years after its passage, school transportation providers are still consistently struggling to safely transport some students with disabilities and to secure the most difficult mobility devices.

Finally, we will review some significant advancements in securement equipment, wheelchairs, and regulation that have the long term potential to alleviate these securement difficulties.
On average, women hold 47% of entry-level jobs. In tech, this number is significantly lower - only 37% of the entry-level jobs are offered to women. How do we recruit more women in tech, and once they are on a tech career path, how do we retain them?

There are a lot of factors that play into choosing a career path. From the region you live in, to social upbringing, access to education and more, navigating your way through a career path can be tricky to say the least.
Oftentimes there is a certain stigma behind pivoting your career path, especially if you are already mid-career. A lot of companies are hiring millennials, so it can be tough to get interviews, find time to learn a new skill, get certified in something, and so on. As a woman, these obstacles can be even more challenging.
We've put together a panel of experts to address these particular issues, as well as provide best practices and tips on pivoting your career, carving out your own professional path, and choosing traditional or nontraditional careers as a woman in tech.

As a professor in a STEM career path, programming, I frequently ask my female student “How did you become interested in this career?” The answer seems to center on one fact – “My parents exposed me to computers when I was younger. As I became more and more interested they helped me understand there was a career in this.”
This early introduction to computer helps my female students overcome another observation I had made – girls feel like boys have been ‘engineering’ or ‘coding’ for a long time.
The stereotypical comment “Boys play with Legos and robots, and girls play with dolls and tea sets,” this seems to support this observation.
So, how do we address the lack of females entering into STEM careers? I propose we start at home.
This webinar addresses some of the obstacles we must overcome with regards to leveling the playing field between girls entering STEM and boys.
