Neuroscience, your social networks, and the future of your career. (Event 5)

  • to
  • Hacker Dojo

    3350 Thomas Rd. , Santa Clara, CA (map)

    37.381470 -121.958351

  • Come in the front door and ask for the CLASSROOM.
  • To what extent does your social network affect how your think about yourself and the actions you take on a daily basis? What are the three dominant types of social networks? How can you cultivate your social network to enable greater professional advancement? What effect does this have on your brain, and why does it matter?

    If you are in a career transition, wish to achieve more in your career, or are considering starting your own company, this workshop is for you. In this 4-hour workshop, we will go beyond social and emotional intelligence to understand how neuroscience and social science have evolved to help women more effectively navigate our professional lives and to gain a greater sense of well-being and accomplishment.

    We’ll discover

    • The role of a personal leadership vision and the “Positive Emotional Attractor”. 
    • The neuroscience of resonant professional relationships and the value of psychological safety. 
    • The characteristics and effects of second-generation gender bias. 
    • The three types of social networks we encounter in our work. 
    • The utility of a professional development plan.

    Hi, I usually don't comment on these forums, but in this case, I feel it's not appropriate to not offer men the opportunity to participate if they should find the material helpful and if the gathered dataset is helpful for the researcher. Hacker dojo is based on being inclusive. Thanks

      Hi Ardy, We will offer a training for women and men in the new year. This one is designed to test theoretical specifications that stipulate women only.

      However, if you fill out the pretest, I will send you your responses.

    There was a question: I have signed up for the Neuroscience, your social networks, and the future of your career meetup this Saturday. I was wondering if this is focused more towards people from coding/IT background. I am not from an IT background. Will this be suitable for me? This meetup is for women interested in leadership. There is no coding involved!

    Are men welcome? I know they usually are (if accompanied by a woman) but I'm not sure if this one is geared toward women...
