ISpossible: Women In Tech Panel Discussion at MongoDB

We hope you will join Howard-Sloan’s ISpossible: Women in Tech for a Q&A discussion with our chosen peer panelists as they share their story and insights. 

Our goal is to engage young women engineers from colleges like NYU, Columbia and Stevens Institute and connect them to inspirational women leaders.  Our driving motivator is to prove that women, although a minority, can break down barriers with their ingenuity, technical prowess, and unwavering drive.  We are here to create a futurist’s sisterhood that fosters the spirit of the “Phenomenal Woman*.”  

Be present, be a role model, and show the future what ISpossible! All women are welcome and encouraged to come and show support!

*”Phenomenal Woman,” A poem by Maya Angelou
