“The stereotypical tech job is a software developer in a tech startup. But the opportunities are so much broader,” said Redefining Women in Tech co-founder Lauren Jerome. “People are building rewarding careers using technology to cure diseases, protect the integrity of our financial institutions, monitor critical infrastructure, guard our privacy, and address pressing community needs.”
