|The Arizona Technology Council's Women in the Workforce Committee was created to provide leadership, mentoring, professional development and networking to women within the Arizona technology and business community.
The May Women in the Workforce Committee event will be a mix of networking and education. Meghan Skiff, director of marketing for management consulting firm Solutions 21, will speak about the women that comprise Generation Y and what sets this demographic apart from the other generations in the workforce.
By 2025, 75% of the global workforce will be comprised of Generation Y. Gen Y women will play a significant role – already out-earning and receiving higher levels of formal education than their male counterparts. But what do these young women expect out of their lives and careers? Join us for a discussion of how this very determined and motivated demographic approaches the intersection of life, work and family. In this workshop, we will discuss:
