Women Worldwide with Deirdre Breakenridge

There’s no denying we’re living in a digital era (and have been for a decade or so). Tech rules everything—and I mean everything. It’s not just the obvious industries like SaaS or mobile. Tech has advanced how we approach everything from healthcare to travel to retail. And now, you can add education to the list. Teachers are using burgeoning technologies to provide more enriching learning experiences for their students.

Enable professionals while fulfilling the educational needs of students on a global level.
