Save The Date: Cleveland WITcon2019

I am looking forward to speaking at the Second Annual Cleveland WITcon2019 conference on October 28 at the Great Lakes Science Center. This year’s theme is “The New Blueprint for Leadership #thisishowwerise” and features speakers on career & leadership, technical, and innovation.

Speaking of innovation, I will be sharing new Emerging Tech content:

Improving the Hospice Experience with Virtual Reality: A case study in introducing the innovation process to end-of-life care

Can the end-of-life experience be improved via innovation? Centric Consulting, Microsoft, and a local hospice care provider teamed up to explore the use of Virtual Reality for improving hospice patient care. This presentation explores not just the technology and healthcare implications, but the innovation process they followed for turning idea into action

The WITcon2019 conference is brought to life by the Cleveland chapter of getWITit, whose mission statement is:

Providing communities a catalyst for economic growth through women’s innovations in technology.
