Women in Technology Leadership Summit | UBTech Conference

Women in Technology Leadership Summit

The glass ceiling for women in higher education technology management is well documented, with women holding just 22% of CIO positions in 2017, a decrease from 28% in 2016. As quoted in the August 2017 issue of University Business, Wayne Brown, Founder of the Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies, states that, “The number of women in tech leadership in higher education is imbalanced”.

Have you broken the "tech ceiling" and are you able to help others do the same?

On June 4, 2018, join University Business in supporting, motivating, educating and inspiring the next wave of influential higher education technology change agents as a speaker at The Women in Technology Leadership Summit at UBTech 2018.
