🎉 Tech Stories: Women Sharing Their Journeys

Women Who Code Portland and LaunchCode are thrilled to present a cross-country online series focused on women in tech exchanging stories, building connections, and supporting each other in their careers. The series will be called "Tech Stories: Women Sharing Their Journeys" and it will take place the last Tuesday of the month.

Each session will feature a conversation with a woman in a senior tech role. Our speakers will talk openly about their current role, their journey, and what their day-to-day work lives are like. We will alternate speakers from the Portland and St Louis communities.
