Where are the smart women at? If the answer isn’t “right here”, then why, and how do we fix that? Solutions to the problem of underrepresentation of women (and other groups) tend to focus on the leaky pipeline: how women fall away from the tracks and how we can keep them on board.

As one of those women, Aoife will share how Togán Labs are working to recruit, train, and benefit from the perspectives and skills of people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
