At DIG South, our CEO Sarah Tourville joined Sharon McGhee, Jill Rowley, SCRA, and Krissa Watry to discuss the important issue of gender diversity in technology and media industries.

“Cracking the Gender Code: How to Stack the Odds in Your Favor” explained how groups diverse in gender, race, ethnicity, and orientation are more innovative than their homogenous counterparts. Companies should pursue diverse workforces not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s good for their bottom line. It just makes sense – having a plethora of backgrounds on a team is essential to solving complex problems.

Sarah provided insight as to how she rose to the elite position she is in today and offers advice to other women on how to accomplish the same. Be sure to look out for her future panels and speaking events – she’s always ready to share her knowledge with eager professionals looking to overcome adversity and achieve great things.
