Making Her Mark in the STEM World: A Conversation with Atipica CEO and Founder Laura Gomez


WHEN: Tuesday, March 16 @ 2 p.m.

Gomez would go on to work as one of the only Latinas at Google and YouTube, and became a founding member of Twitter’s International Team. In 2015, Gomez founded Atipica, a recruiting software start-up that uses artificial and human intelligence to help companies make bias-free decisions when hiring employees.
