Women hold only 26% of professional computing occupations, something the Women in Tech Regatta is working to change. The Regatta is an inclusive event that connects, amplifies and celebrates women in tech through informative and interactive events. Events like these are important to recruit and retain women in the technology field; that’s why Cambia was proud to sponsor this year’s fifth annual Seattle Women in Tech Regatta.
Although attendees couldn’t gather in-person due to the ongoing pandemic, the event was able to break down barriers of location and access by holding the event virtually.
Cambia Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Marion Couch, M.D., moderated a panel on interoperability ‒ or data sharing ‒ and health care transformation.
