The recent increase in women in technology speaks volume of the strides we are making in equality, but there is still much ground to be covered. This collection of speeches shines the spotlight on some of the inspiring women who are paving the path for women in tech. Some of these women such as Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer are executives at massive social media networks and serve as great examples for young women everywhere.
The talk by Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo!, discusses the importance of leaders being able to prioritize an agenda.

She believes that tech companies need to be competitive and adaptable enough to create a product and push it forward.
