BTG + Charles Schwab: Speed Mentoring for Women In Tech
Due to the popularity of our last speed mentoring event – and the rainstorm that prevented so many from attending – we are bringing it back! Especially because many people are starting to set career goals for the new year, we thought it was important to get more of these workshops on the calendar before the holidays begin. This event will take place on November 28th from 6pm – 8pm, and it’s happening at Charles Schwab! ***Space will be limited. To secure your spot, you must RSVP on Eventbrite to attend: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/btg-charles-schwab-november-28th-speed-mentoring-for-women-in-tech-tickets-51349504751?aff=meetup (We are also hosting a speed mentoring event in South Austin at Digital Marketer on October 30th. Check the meetup.com calendar for more information on upcoming events.) Directions: Their address is 2309 Gracy Farms but it is best accessessed through a small road off burnet road between Top Golf and IBM. You will need to check in with security inside building "AUS1". All names will be given to security prior to the event, so make sure you RSVP ahead of time. Just like last time, this event will be all about your next career step – whatever and wherever that may be. For many women in tech, having a great mentor makes all the difference in developing a purposeful career with a clear sense of direction. We’ll start off with a short presentation about the value of mentor/mentee relationships, followed by a “speed mentoring” workshop. You will get the opportunity to meet a handful of potential mentors and build your network in multiple 15 minute, one-on-one sessions. If a match makes sense, the two of you are welcome to exchange contact info and keep the conversation going on your own. This event will primarily benefit: - Women in STEM/tech/digital who want to change direction or companies - Women who work for tech/digital companies and are preparing to negotiate a promotion - Women in junior positions or new graduates looking for opportunities in the tech industry ***Space will be limited. To secure your spot, you must RSVP on Eventbrite to attend: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/btg-charles-schwab-november-28th-speed-mentoring-for-women-in-tech-tickets-51349504751?aff=meetup Mentors have been hand selected from the Breaking The Glass community.
