Ladies Who Tech的大家庭多了一个新成员：深圳。Ladies Who Tech与微软和OnePiece Work携手启动了深圳的一起庆祝了国际妇女节，并携手启动了深圳的第一场活动。为了反映深圳科技环境的多样性，Ladies Who Tech邀请了来自软件，硬件和创业界的榜样分享行业的发展和各自的见解。
Ladies Who Tech has added a new member to the family: Shenzhen. Together with Microsoft and OnePiece Work, Ladies Who Tech celebrated International Women’s Day, inclusion, and the launch of the organization’s newest chapter. To reflect the diversity of Shenzhen’s tech environment, Ladies Who Tech invited role models to discuss developments and insights in software, hardware, and the startup space.
The first speaker of the evening was Ashley Dong, CTO of green technology start-up, Erthos. She shared shocking truths of plastic pollution, and how Erthos is counteracting these environmental impacts through bioplastic – a plant powered alternative to plastic that is compatible, compliant, conscientious, and compostable.
Grace Peng, partner development manager at Microsoft, gave the audience a closer look at Microsoft’s latest technology – a speech synthesis system which uses intelligent technology to create customized audio. Grace also shared many practical applications of the technology, from brand differentiation through a customized voice, to creating audiobooks of classic literary works for the visually impaired.
Finally, we heard from Susie Liu, Head of Marketing at global consumer tech brand, OnePlus. Instead of focusing on hardware, Susie shared insights into the industry as a whole, and how marketing and branding are at the core of generating future growth, providing a clear case for the need of increased diversity in the world of consumer technology.
Following the keynote speeches, the speakers were invited back on stage for a panel discussion hosted by Jason Tsao, Area Transformation Lead and AI Lead Microsoft Greater China Region. The discussion centered around each speaker’s individual journey, their thoughts on Shenzhen, and advice they had for individuals considering a career in technology.
