Tech Moves Forward. Why Isn’t She?
Despite more women than ever beginning scientific or technical careers, more of them are also exiting these fields — unfulfilled and under-appreciated. Leadership positions in the tech world continue to be male-dominated, leaving most organizations gender-imbalanced in a way that not only discourages and drives away ambitious women but also puts businesses at risk of underperformance.
Relying on decades of research about women’s leadership as well as expert insights from women in technical roles, we’ve created Advancing Technical Women — an intensive skill-strengthening program designed specifically for early-to-mid career women who want to increase their visibility and improve their opportunities for advancement in the tech industry.
Using real-world experiential exercises and candid peer feedback, Advancing Technical Women helps women recognize and communicate their distinctive value with clarity and confidence while giving them tested and proven strategies for networking more effectively and expanding their portfolio of leadership experiences.
Women in tech improve business outcomes across the board.
That’s why it is imperative they climb the ladder.
