About this talk

Right now is an exciting time to be part of the Technology industry, as it is constantly growing and evolving at a rapid pace. However, it is well known that the tech industry is highly male-dominated and the topic of women in tech has been widely discussed over the years. Cognigy is delighted to present this special International Women´s Day webinar with our guest speaker Megan Gill, Head of Recruitment at Xena together with Alexandra Anders, VP of People & Culture at Cognigy, and Marinos Balaskas, Senior Technical Recruiter at Cognigy. Join this Q&A discussion as they explore the challenges associated with being a woman working in tech and share their insights on what companies can do to help diversify their workforce close the gender gap in tech. • Our guest speaker Megan Gill has been with Xena since the company was founded back in 2020.
