Technical Executive Forum Lightning Talks

The Technical Executive Forum (TEF) is a key Partner Program, held in conjunction with Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). Since 2007, TEF has convened C-level technical executives from Partner organizations to discuss the challenges and opportunities their companies face in retaining and advancing women technologists. C-level technical executive participants connect, collaborate, and learn from experts and their executive peers on cutting-edge research and strategies towards creating diverse, inclusive and equitable tech workplaces. recognizes there is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution to solve the complex issues of incorporating intersectional diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices within the tech ecosystem. For this reason, TEF continues to highlight different movements in the technology industry that encourage voices and organizations to catalyze change around workplace culture, cultivate allyship, and create a culture of results.

Engage with the following TEF Case Studies to discover different pathways, incorporating technical and DEI perspectives, to bring back to your own organization.
