Femgineer Forum: Overcoming Insecurities to Innovate

We all want to build innovative products, and work on teams that love to create and ship!  But too often our creative potential and problem solving skills are stifled by our own insecurities.  They seem to be exacerbated by our own judgment of our abilities, and comparing ourselves to individuals around us who seem more accomplished.  However, we need to learn to set them aside to work effectively with others, and build products and companies we can be proud of!

In this Femgineer Forum we'll cover the following:

• Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

• Staying Confident in Your Capabilities

• Learning to Take Risks

• Finding Support and Mentorship


This event is open to professionals in tech (both men and women), but is closed to recruiters.  Thank you for your understanding!

      Oh actually it's falafels, hummus, dolma, etc. So kind of like appetizers, but you could eat enough to get pretty full :)
