United States: Debra Innocenti Addresses Future Of Women In Tech
Last Updated: March 10 2016

Local entrepreneurs and leaders across various industries convened Tuesday to discuss the presence of women in the tech industry at the Women of TechBloc luncheon, which included a sold-out panel discussion hosted by local TechBloc, a tech advocacy organization, and held at Rackspace headquarter's event center.

The event was the first of its kind in San Antonio, and served as an opportunity to spark discussion about the roles of women in the evolving San Antonio tech and entrepreneurial communities.

"While women's opportunities in the past have been limited, our contributions have been significant, so we have made a lot of progress. There's a lot more that we need to do, though, to encourage more women and our younger girls to be involved," said Mayor Ivy Taylor, who gave the opening remarks of the afternoon. Taylor mentioned that her own 12-year-old daughter, Morgan, strives to be a scientist or an engineer in the future.

The panel was moderated by Rackspace Chief Marketing Officer Carla Sublett, and formed by local women executives in the tech industry: WP Engine Chief Financial Operator April Downing, VentureLab Founder Cristal Glangchai, and Strasburger and Price LLP Partner Debra Innocenti.
