From tech leaders to academic activists to award-winning teenage coders, Accenture put a broad spectrum of inspiring women onstage for International Women’s Day 2016.

Dublin played host to one of 200 Accenture-led International Women’s Day events around the world, featuring speakers from a multitude of industries and disciplines.

We asked some of these speakers to share their career journey, to highlight the breadth of opportunities in technology and leadership, and the women who are leading the way.
