Five Dynamic Panel Sessions

Getting Comfortable with Self- Advocating

No matter how uncomfortable or unnatural it may feel, it is important and necessary for you to self-advocate. Men often exaggerate their outcomes while traditionally women underplay their value and input. In this session, hear from other women on how they accepted their accomplishments and utilized it to articulate their strengths and capabilities.

The Importance of Allies

In order to bring our best selves to work, we need to feel heard and included. By aligning with the right people, you can be supported and enabled in a way you wouldn’t otherwise. In this roundtable, tech leaders discuss how they created relationships that were pivotal in their career and how they now have become an ally themselves.

Remote Working: Navigating the Pro’s and Con’s

Working remotely isn’t a new concept but has been amplified and reinvented with the introduction of COVID. It has its many advantages but also forces different ways of managing workloads and behaviors. Learn how other women are navigating these new waters.

The Impact of Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

Unconscious bias is a prejudice outside of one’s awareness. Everyday our colleagues and leaders are making decisions that may impact us in a negative way unintentionally based on their unconscious bias. Although it may not be possible to eliminate bias completely, in this session, we’ll explore the different types of bias, and tangible ways to reduce the negative impact.

Leadership & Power: Becoming a Master Influencer

To influence is to have an impact on the behaviors, attitudes, opinions and choices of others. Whether you’re leading a project, a team, or the company’s technical strategy, your ability to influence others will determine your success in driving change, building cohesive teams and successfully implementing a strategic vision.
