The gender gap of women in STEM is setting the industry up for record-low numbers of diversity in under 30 years. Monica Eaton-Cardone, founder and CIO of Global Risk Technologies, says that in order for today’s women to have a chance tomorrow, gender must become a non-factor.

Monica Eaton-Cardone is an entrepreneur and business leader with expertise in technology, e-commerce, risk relativity and payment-processing solutions. She has co-founded a number of successful companies, which globally comprise 350-plus employees. She currently serves as the CIO of GRT, the international organization with subsidiaries in the US, Chargebacks911 and eConsumerServices. Eaton-Cardone has earned a reputation for creative business solutions, helping merchants and banks to achieve sustainable payment-processing practices and supporting consumers in resolving transaction issues. She is a champion of women in IT, and hopes to contribute to an expanded presence of females in technical professions and leadership roles.
