A panel of women, speaking in a fireside chat format with a moderator, will examine ways women can shape the world–either by bringing about change through their work, or by embodying change as a pioneer in their field.

She was named among Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business in 2015 and 2016 and is a tireless advocate for women and underrepresented minorities in the fields of engineering and technology.
