LONDON – Sept. 12, 2017 – Therese Tucker, CEO and founder of accounting automation software provider BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL), has been invited to speak later this month at the Financial Times (FT) Women at the Top Summit in London.
Ms. Tucker will participate on a panel entitled “Women’s Missing Voices in Technology,” drawing on her experience building BlackLine from the ground up into a leader in its space, overcoming the challenge of being a woman in two male-dominated industries (accounting/finance and technology). Therese will be joined by the CEO of Innovate UK and COO of Open Bionics. The panel will be moderated by Financial Times editor Maija Palmer.
The FT Women at the Top Summit is designed to tackle one of the most complex challenges we face today: how to fix the gender imbalance in the top ranks of business in Britain and beyond. The Summit will take place on Wednesday, 27 September, at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane Hotel. Additional speakers include senior executives from other leading global organisations such as Salesforce, Google, Alibaba Group, McKinsey & Co. and Bank of England.
