As the event concluded, it was clear that the International Meetup laid the groundwork for a collaborative and inspiring Pax8 Beyond experience, uniting partners in their common goal of driving innovation and success in the tech industry.

Women in Tech panel and happy hour

Their contributions embody the spirit of innovation and excellence, serving as role models for aspiring tech professionals. These dynamic women shared their insights on navigating the tech industry, fostering innovation, and the importance of diversity and inclusion. Caroline closed the session with these words of encouragement: “Careers aren’t ladders, they’re jungle gyms. Climb around.”
