2015 Annual RedChairPGH Event

Our 2015 event was held at the Pitt University Club. Pittsburgh’s Chief Innoation and Performance Officer Debra Lam spoke on her experience building a diverse leadership team. DDI CEO Tacy Byham highlighted the most critical thoughts, research, and best practices from her #LeadLikeAGirl presentation. Microsoft’s Sr. Global Diversity & Inclusion Manager shared their program and successful use of the Red Chair. After hearing from our speakers, attendees took part in the Red Chair Experience by taking photos with the Red Chair and meeting with the next generation of technology through our student volunteers. Material from NCWIT and local Pittsburgh advocacy organizations was available as well as Tacy Byham’s book.
