The future of the federal government will comprise a workforce that better represents the diverse population it serves, and agencies are strategizing on how to make this a reality. In many ways, these initiatives will impact technology priorities and processes, including recruitment efforts, Agile frameworks, artificial intelligence, data management and more. With women representing only a quarter of the entire STEM field, the calling for women technology leaders to public service is vital and urgent. These prominent women discuss the solutions to challenges many technology teams are facing governmentwide.
