WITS Connect April 2021
WITS Connect is a free, virtual monthly meetup for women working in and with tech. Each month we will feature women in tech sharing their expertise in a trending area of tech or insights acquired during their tech careers.
They will share their stories, you get to ask questions, and then we will network! Join other women working in and with technology, in technical and business roles, at all levels of their careers for a monthly gathering full of education, inspiration, and connections.
April's Topic: Benefit of the Doubt: Don't Minimize Us to Marginalizations
Women and people of color are constantly reminded that we don't fit the stereotype of a person working in technology. An exciting panel of diverse women working at a high-tech autonomous drone company across both traditional technical roles (writing software) and non-technical functions will share their stories. We have a range of backgrounds and experiences in earning respect and feeling valued for our contributions while navigating a male-dominated field.
As the company has increased its headcount, we have created a space for our growing representation to support each other, despite having very few actual interactions given our daily roles. These relationships are especially difficult to cultivate during the time of COVID when we're not physically working in a shared space. Join us to hear our stories and learn about how we are cultivating an inclusive culture where everyone is given the same benefit of the doubt.
