About This Event
Working in tech and being a mom have a ton in common: both are challenging but rewarding jobs, both involve long hours working toward an MVP, and both would be much more difficult without a community providing knowledge and encouragement.
It’s time to make that idea of community a more integral part of the experience for moms in tech, especially when tough challenges arise at work or at home. At this Tech By Choice event, a panel of women will participate in an open, candid discussion about balancing their careers with motherhood. Attendees will also undertake an activity illustrating the full development cycle, and will leave with a one-page website they can share with friends and family.
Free onsite certified childcare will be available for your little ones. Just let us know the name(s) and age(s) of your little ones when you RSVP.
The event will feature free food and a surprise or two.
