Westport, CT — October 7, 2021 — HMG Strategy, the World’s #1 digital platform for enabling technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to be hosting its 2021 HMG Live! Global Women in Technology Summit on October 25. HMG Strategy’s highly interactive events bring together the world’s most distinguished and innovative business technology leaders to discuss the most pressing leadership, strategic, cultural, technology and career challenges and opportunities that they face today – and into the future.

The 2021 HMG Live! Global Women in Technology Summit will focus on the role of female technology executives in creating a community of mentorship which aligns top talent to the mission of the organization while embracing diversity, equity and inclusion. A-list speakers for this event will also discuss the mind shift that needs to take place in a male-dominated C-suite to better mentor women into leadership roles.

“As members of the senior leadership team strive to promote diversity, equity and inclusion across the workplace, a good starting point is championing under-represented female colleagues into leadership roles,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO at HMG Strategy. “Our Global Women in Technology Summit series tackles some of the toughest challenges that female technology executives are facing in their roles to help to foster a more inclusive and winning culture for all stakeholders.”
