Celebrating International Women’s Day with Wisdom from Women in Tech

This week we celebrated 2016’s International Women’s Day. Jive’s CEO, Elisa Steele, joined fellow women execs in Houston, Texas, for Pink Petro’s  International Women’s Day: A Conversation with the C-Suite event to discuss the women in tech movement, the rise of women in STEM related jobs and their personal thoughts on the future of digital technologies.

In honor of all the amazing and bold women at Jive, and around the world, we have gathered advice from some of the leading ladies in tech to inspire you.
