About our program
In our Women in Media panel discussion, we’ll explore what it’s like to be a female tech reporter in Silicon Valley, particularly in the time of the #metoo movement. Are things getting better or getting worse? How is reporting in the Valley different than tech reporting in other regions? And if our panelists had a magic want, what would they change?
We already know it’s hard to become a Chief Communications Officer (CCO), but it’s even harder if you’re a woman, or a woman of color. In our CCO panel, presented and moderated by PR Talent, we’ll hear from those who have made it about their journey to PR’s top spot, and where they want to go from here.
Thank you to our sponsors
