It’s no secret there’s a lack of female representation on corporate leadership teams, board seats and executive positions. The same is true for women in top technology roles. How do organizations attract more women to tech leadership positions? And how do they cultivate a culture that encourages women to rise up through leadership ranks? A panel of HR and technology leaders tackle these and other questions in this 45-minute panel. Afterward, join your peers for 45 minutes of roundtable discussions to share actionable ways to promote female leadership.

IT Visionary

A well-oiled organization requires its many parts to operate in harmony. Without that synergy, communication becomes mangled, objectives are overlooked and important processes begin to break down. This applies to every part of an organization, but especially the business and IT departments. Seamless knowledge transfer can have major benefits and impact an organization’s bottom line. Drawing from their own journeys, panelists in this session explore ways to close the IT-business gap and discuss why it’s so important.

Head of Research

Onapsis, Inc.

Digital transformation is not just a buzzword, but an outline of business and operational plans to integrate and prioritize the latest digital technologies available. Unfortunately security is often second priority, or not even in the scope of the transformation project. Worse, many organizations have not identified a plan for how they will migrate their most critical SAP and Oracle applications in a secure way, putting their assets at risk. Join this session to discuss how to make security an enabler instead of a roadblock? What key action items can you implement immediately to ensure security and compliance of your business critical applications?

SVP, Service Operations & CIO

Creating an agile enterprise has clear advantages for organizations. The ability to pivot nimbly in a rapidly changing world can be a major differentiator, but making the transition demands a reimagination of business models, technology strategies and company culture—all at the same time. Penn Mutual Life Insurance has made this smooth switch to agile methodologies, but it didn’t come easy. Still, the 171-year-old organization has reaped major rewards since saying goodbye to segregated project management in favor of continuous delivery, allowing them to innovate faster than competitors. Listen to Greg Driscoll as he shares the tools, tactics and pitfalls of Penn Mutual’s path to agility.

Digital technologies that drive innovation and transformation are making major strides. But digital technology alone doesn’t make for an impactful enterprise-wide transformation.

Join this session to identify key cultural challenges within organizations and identify maturity road maps to becoming an adaptive digital enterprise.
