Women in the Workforce: Navigating Career Progression


Women Helping Women: Navigating Career Progression

Join the Arizona Technology Council’s Women in the Workforce Committee on Thursday, November 1 from 4:30-6:30PM for a panel discussion with dynamic women from all stages of careers within technology. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore how evolution of a career happens, creating intentional professional steps, and how we can help to encourage and promote one other.

The discussion will center around challenges women face in the workplace everywhere, and more specifically in the male-dominated technology sector. The panel member perspectives will provide value and insight for women in entry-level positions, through mid and senior management, as well as, executives.

Speakers will address issues such as impostor syndrome, gender-based and unconscious biases, negative self-talk, and others. What we are looking to gain from this panel discussion are ways of recruiting, supporting, empowering and promoting ourselves within the industry. Through better understanding in the how and the why challenges happen and identifying effective tools to change our experience, we can begin to effect meaningful and lasting change for ourselves, our peers and the future of the industry.
