Moderated group discussion, with talking points provided by Amy Jo Esser, who has more than 30 years' experience working in tech in a variety of roles (and who is unfortunately now unable to attend):

"We are all leaders. At minimum, we must lead ourselves every single day. In addition, many of us have teams that we lead and serve. Have you ever stopped to analyze yourself to determine if you are the BEST leader you can be?"


Feel free to arrive anytime between 5:00 and 5:30pm; talk will begin at 5:30pm.


Novel Coworking is located downtown. On-site parking will be available in the ramp behind the building, which has access at W. Main Street and Washington Place (alley between Capitol West). Park on Level B in the visitor parking area, and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.

The following bus lines come within a few blocks:

1, 5, W7, 10, 11, 19, 27, 38, 47, 75, 82


The building is wheelchair accessible, and children are welcome. Unfortunately, gender neutral bathrooms will not be available.

All genders are welcome at this event.


While this event is open to all genders, Madison Women in Tech deliberately curates spaces for and by women and nonbinary folks. Men who attend are expected to listen, and not center themselves or their experiences.
