Date: October 23, 2019 Time: Networking: 6:30PM - 7PM. Panel: 7PM - 8:30PM Location: Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Center Cost: FREE Sponsored by DC FemTech When women in excel in technology/STEM careers, we all excel as a society. It is imperative for every type of women to see themselves beyond antiquated narratives, defy the status quo, and master the skills of bringing ideas into real life by developing and designing technology. It is essentially a new form of liberation. A lot of the discussion is about the importance of women in tech, and we have made amazing progress in recognizing why women should have careers in STEM and how it benefits everyone. This panel takes it a step further to discuss not just the reasons why women need to be in STEM careers, but also at the every day actions women take to be successful once they have a career in STEM. This panel explores the lives of five successful women from across the tech industry. Some panelists are software developers, data scientists, and designers rethinking business models and creating work environments where women thrive. Some panelists are non-technical entrepreneurs and looking to ally themselves with badass ladies in tech. Women deal with a unique set of barriers even after entering the industry and our panelists have sharp insight into overcoming and thriving. The struggle of being a woman in tech goes beyond just landing the job. It’s about how to navigate the tech world once you’re in—how to stay relevant, how to form alliances, how to gain and maintain credibility, and how to lead and pay it forward. Fun Alert: We're going beyond just convincing people there's a problem. We're creating a playful and immersive experience to lean into solutions. Ladies on the Panel: Geetha Ramachandran: Director of Application Engineering at FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) Nancy Koide: Co-Founder of ItsHospitality. Juhee Jain: UI/UX and new entrepreneur. Check her out!: https://www.juheejain.com Sian Lewis: Data Scientist and a leader of WiDS (Women in Data Science) at Booz Allen Hamilton.
