Femgineer Forum: Tech Talk on Compelling Communication Hosted by Twilio

There are a number of issues women in tech face.  While many panels and talks focus on chattig about these issues, there are very few that dig into solutions. Working hard alone isn't sufficient to get to the top.  The purpose of the femgineer forum is to highlight and address the issues prevalent in today's tech companies, and give women solution for dealing with them.  In this session we will cover the following:

  • How to interview at male dominated tech companies
  • How to communicate with supervisors
  • How to craft an ASK regarding a promotion, pay raise, or change in role

You'll walk aways with the tools you can cuse to communicate in a compelling manner with your team and supervisors.


This event is for all women in tech in any role: developers, designers, product managers, sales, and marketing.

    Hello Femgineers!

    Wonderful to see so many people have already signed up for this group after I just started it! Wanted to make 2 small requests :)

    1. Please like us on Facebook to help build awareness http://www.facebook.com/femgineer, it will help with sponsorships and then I won't need to charge for events!

    2. I've lowered the price of the upcoming event at Twilio, and I'm hoping that more people will be able to attend as a result.

    3. Just wanted to share a wonderful video that Atlassian just created: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mlYjuvTt9mM

    Have a good evening!
