Closing The Technical Skills Gap For Women At Work: Panel | Online

September 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

It’s time to get more women in tech—like yesterday. Join Flatiron School and Learn In for a conversation about crushing the gender gap.

The most common jobs for women in the U.S. involve people, communication, and caregiving: Nursing, teaching, customer service, people management.

We don’t always associate these skills with exceptional tech workers. But we should. And for the women already working in tech, they represent just one quarter of all workers. This isn’t a pipeline or a motivation issue, this is all about removing old-school bias in how we support women in building skills.

At this virtual panel event hosted by Flatiron School and Learn In, you’ll hear from some amazing women in tech who took control of their career, flipped the script, and successfully navigated their way to building the tech careers of their dreams.

Moderator:
Deeps Ramanathan – Chief Marketing Officer, Learn In

Panelists:
– Rebekah Rombom – Chief Business Development Officer, Flatiron School
– Yael Kaufmann – Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Learn In
– Rose Sheldon – Head of Enterprise Learning & Development, Allstate
– Naya Bere – Flatiron School Graduate, Software Engineer, DreamWorks and Creator of The Black Female Engineer
– Saima Akhtar – Flatiron School Graduate and Associate Director, Vagelos Computational Science Center at Barnard College

Hoping to move into a tech role within your organization, or looking for your next opportunity? Bring all of your questions and get ready to be inspired to catapult your life, your career, and the entire industry’s gender gap.

All are welcome at this event, regardless of gender, background or experience level.
