Clearwater, Kount, and Intuit Partner to Host Women in Technology Event

Monday, November 4, 2019

Three Boise technology companies are uniting to host an event aimed at boosting support and professional networking for women working in technology fields in the Treasure Valley.

Clearwater Analytics, Kount, and Intuit (makers of TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mint) will host the collaborative Treasure Valley Women in Tech event November 7 at Clearwater’s headquarters in Boise. The companies invited 100 women working in various aspects of the local technology industry to participate. The event will include roundtable discussions and networking opportunities. Katy Kahla, a leader in product development at Intuit, and Rebecca Hupp, Airport Director at the Boise Airport, are featured speakers.

Topics to be discussed include tactics and tips for compensation negotiation; considerations for confronting and defeating gender-based harassment in the workplace; ideas for encouraging male colleagues to become professional allies; and more.

“We want to be an organization recognized for our workplace — an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities and support for all of our employees. Building a network with organizations like Kount and Intuit allows us to team together to drive important initiatives like supporting women in technology,” said Cindy Blendu, Chief Transformation Officer at Clearwater Analytics.

“At Kount, we see tremendous value in cultivating a diverse workplace that showcases the talents and influences of each of our team members,” said Kate Lenz, Vice President of Human Resources at Kount. “We are excited to kick off this collaboration with Clearwater and Intuit, to advance our common goal of supporting and empowering top talent, and celebrating the success of women in leadership positions. This event is an ideal opportunity to encourage the up-and-comers to have confidence in their abilities and pursue high-level careers in technology industries.”

“I love working with inclusive and diverse teams,” Kahla said. “By bringing our companies together, we can continue to bring awareness to the inequalities still faced in the work force. We can work together to learn and share about new programs, workshops, and changes that have been successful or not so we can drive to make impactful changes for our community. I am excited for what the future holds for Boise, Idaho.”

The Treasure Valley Women in Tech event is one of many initiatives local technology companies are undertaking to support women in the workplace and encourage the next generation of workers to pursue careers in technology fields. Women at Clearwater, Kount, and Intuit are driving opportunities at their companies and in the community to work toward that goal.
