A Bigger Tent: Women in Colorado's Tech Scene

Join Denver Post Business Editor Dana Coffield as she moderates a panel on the challenges and opportunities facing women in Colorado's burgeoning technology sector.
Panelists are:

  • Suma Nallapati, Colorado's Secretary of Technology and Chief Information Officer
  • Heather Terenzio, founder and CEO of the Techtonic Group and Techtonic Academy
  • Terry Morreale, Associate Director and CTO at National Center for Women in Technology

Like many tech markets, Colorado struggles to both fill tech positions as well as provide opportunities to traditionally underserved markets, including women. This panel will discuss ideas to make tech careers more available and appealing to women and other underserved populations. Each member of the panel has specific experience -- as well as passion -- in addressing this problem and bringing new solutions and ideas to the market.
