What we're about

We are a local chapter of ChickTech, a national nonprofit organization, working to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors. Our group creates welcoming and inclusive meetups in and around Raleigh to get together, learn and network. Our goal is to build a tech community where women and girls are encouraged, empowered and welcome.

Inclusion Policy
We create events that focus on empowering women/girls; however, we also welcome those who identify as men as participants. Any person may be asked to not participate and/or leave if they are being disruptive or creating an unwelcome environment for others. Please see http://chicktech.org/inclusion-policy for more information.

ACT-W+ Webinar: What Exactly is a Program Manager? (with Microsoft CSE)

REGISTER HERE: https://plus.act-w.org/what-exactly-is-a-program-manager-microsoft-cse

The knee-jerk reaction to the title “Program Manager” is often to assume it means Technical Program Manager… or maybe that it is the same thing as a Product Manager or Project Manager?

We have invited 4 Program Managers from the Microsoft Commercial Software Engineering Organization to answer the question, “What exactly is a Program Manager?” They will share their day-to-day, the different types of Program Management, and answer any of your questions about the PM career path. Cotishea, Yesenia, Tolu, and Jhansi will all share their journeys to becoming a PM, what being a Program Manager means to them, and tips and tricks they’ve learned over the years.

ACT-W+ allows ChickTech’s mission to extend further than ever before. Through an online community, resources, workshops, and networks, ACT-W+ supports the development of professionals, while providing high quality content and programming. Proceeds obtained through individual and corporate memberships are used to fund youth empowerment and educational opportunities across the country.

Our online membership community is tailored toward individuals in all stages of their professional careers. Whether you’re just starting out in tech or you’re a tech veteran, ACT-W+ has something to offer! Join with us to connect with our community of female, non-binary, and transgender professionals advancing their careers in tech.
