Geek Girls Are Chic

I’m so thrilled that I am sharing the stage during a SXSW featured session with one of my favorite organizations:

  • Girls Who Code! Joining me will be Elizabeth Caudle, Director for Girls Who Code. Elizabeth’s background is rich in STEM-type roles where she has been a supporter and leader of organizations dedicated to advancing educational opportunities around the globe!

During our session, Elizabeth and I will discuss women’s participation in tech-related fields, why there are fewer women graduating with a technical degree, and why women are not rising in the tech ranks or startup businesses. We’ll tackle these issues, as well as discuss how the tech industry can benefit from innovations from women. We’ll discuss why more women need to take risks and embrace failure and build the courage the shatter the glass ceiling! We’ll also share with you 5 career hacks that can help you strategize your approach to grow your career!

Here’s a taste of what we’ll share with you:

  • Doing your homework is a MOOC point
  • Be an Open API
  • Define your “ALL”

Watch my short video to get a taste of my session with Girls Who Code!

And after the session, be sure to join me at the SXSW Bookstore where I’ll be signing copies of my books. Come by, say “Hi!” and share your ideas with me! I promise, it’ll be a lively debate!
