Women in Technology Keynote Speech & Panel

Breakout Option #1 | Business Chemistry
Business Chemistry is a system designed to provide insights about individuals and teams based on observable business traits and preferences. It draws upon the latest analytics technologies to reveal four scientifically-based patterns of behavior. Prior to the event, you will take an online assessment to leverage during the session, where you will learn about your own business style and how you can leverage Business Chemistry when working with others.
Breakout Option #2 | Technology Trends
Every year Deloitte publishes a Tech Trends report that examines the ever-evolving technology landscape and those trends that have the potential to transform business, government, and society. This session will explore the intersection of technology and business, and take a deep dive into a few of this year’s most exciting trends.
Networking Lunch: 12:45 pm – 1:45 pm
An optional networking lunch will provide you an opportunity to speak in small groups with Deloitte practitioners.
Session 3: 2:00 pm – 4:15 pm
Breakout Option #1 | Case Workshop
This session is a case study “how to” that will consist of an overview of important case study skills, methods for approaching a case interview, and an interactive activity where you will work in groups to solve a case question with guidance and feedback from Deloitte practitioners. It will also include an introduction to the agile project methodology, a method that embraces change and is focused on quickly delivering value to clients.
Breakout Option #2 | Preparing for the Workforce
In this session we will provide tips and advice for preparing for life after graduation. We’ll discuss ideas for what you can being doing now, as well as share what we wish we had known when we were in your shoes.
