Women in IT – Why it Matters

This week, Linda Zecher participated in The Global Forum/Shaping the Future event in Washington DC, an annual event that dives into the economic, political and societal issues in today’s society. Linda, who leads Microsoft’s Worldwide Public Sector business, spoke in separate sessions on Citizen-Centered eHealth and Empowering Women in Technology.

Following her participation at the event, Linda spoke with us on the latter topic. She shared her thoughts on why it’s important for women to consider careers in IT and how Microsoft is working with partners around the world to empower women to develop the skills they need to help build a community of leaders and boost national competitiveness.
