This panel brings together three figures who have helped make history advancing transgender inclusion in tech spaces. Meghan Stabler, senior director CA Technologies, helped open the industry to trans people through her work with the Human Rights Campaign and was Working Mother Magazine's 2014 Working Mother of the Year. Brielle Harrison, a user interface engineer at Facebook, helped create and implement that platform's industry-leading custom gender options. Dr. Kortney Ziegler envisioned and built Trans*H4CK, a hackathon and speaker series that spotlights transgender created tech and entrepreneurship. Allyson Robinson, Vice President for Knowledge and Impact at the LGBT Technology Partnership in Washington, D.C. and a transgender pioneer in her own right, will facilitate a conversation among these trailblazers about the trajectory of transgender inclusion in tech and what it might mean for the future of diversity in the industry.
