Women's representation in tech is low, and has surprisingly declined since the '90s. In fact, women in tech are leaving at mid-career at twice the rate of men. Yet demand for these roles continues to grow.

In partnership with WEST (Women Entering and Staying in Tech), this webinar features a panel of mentors that will discuss how mentoring is an effective way to support women in tech, and particularly, the crucial role men can play.

Our panelists:

  • Demetrius Comes, VP of Software, GoDaddy
  • Tim Krajcar, Director of Engineering, New Relic
  • Sumathi Swaminathan, VP of Engineering, Stride
  • Kesha Williams, Software Engineering Manager, Chick-fil-A Corporate
    • You'll learn:

    • How mentoring helps early- and mid-career women in tech get to the next level
    • The less-discussed angle of how mentors benefit from a mentoring partnership
    • The importance of program structure and accountability
