Ms. Mahoney speaks broadly on the topic of women in computing, including the United Nations, Dell World, the US Department of State and as a panelist focused on women in computing. She was an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative and is part of two CGI commitments—WeTech, a program supporting technical women in India and Africa; and Girls CHARGE, a global program fostering female education. She maintains the issue isn’t just the pipeline—once in jobs, 56% of women in STEM will leave the industry during their career.
