The topics and questions to be addressed include the following:
- What is innovation and why is it important?
- Design Thinking as a methodology to enable innovation. Inspirational examples.

- How to build a prototype of something we want for our lives.
- How to test our prototype with others. Hands-on individual and team practice.
Women in Technology webinars are open to all audiences. They cover broad topics so anyone can benefit, but their focus is always to address the barriers to women's participation in technology.
