A fireside chat with Fiona Tan, SVP, Customer Technology and AI (Walmart) and Laura Heisman, Vice President of Communications (GitHub).

While women comprised 37% of computer science graduates in 1984, only 18% pursue the field today. Increasing the number of women who can code and specifically in the growing field of artificial intelligence, is critical. In this session, Laura Heisman, GitHub's VP of Communications will interview Fiona Tan, Senior Vice President of Customer Technology at Walmart Labs on why women are fundamental to the future of the self-learning algorithms that power A.I. and why closing the gender gap in STEM is not only important for business, but important for society.
