Women in Tech

Hi! I run a ladies in technology monthly call for the ladies in Tech in my office. What are some conversations topics or hot topics that interest you as fellow ladies in tech?

It’s more so driven off the fact that some 48% of women in technology feel like they don’t have role models or mentors in the technology field and that’s a huge barrier faced by women in Tech. So my question was more so not about technology itself (like cloud computing or Rpa) but rather what are conversation topics that have an impact on women who work in the Tech filed (e.g., how to manage having all male peers and superiors, how to manage being a mom and a worker, how to discuss pay/compensation/raises) sorry if my original post was unclear

Ladies in tech is clearly a challenge not only for Protiviti but across the world! It’s great to see more focus on helping our younger talent find female role models. As a mom of two girls and a female in tech I don’t view my gender as a weakness, it’s quite the opposite. I bring a unique perspective to a room full of men. I think coaching our ladies on how to gain more visibility is a good topic.

Most large cities have a formal group for WiT (in fact, “WiT”, or maybe WITI (?) is one such org). You can likely get some great ideas for your topics from those meetings, or even by perusing their calendar of events online. Also, if you’re not already a part, I recommend looking into WomenHack on Facebook

All of them. Seriously why would women be interested in different tech topics than men? Tech is gender neutral.

@protiviti 1 oooo! I really like how your phrases that! Our next call is about being a mom and working and how to balance all that so I might borrow from your note above!

I help manage a branch of the WIT for our US practice; but we also leverage regional office sites were women championing the initiative locally, hosting tech topic chats, meet & greets & events. Having decentralized sites across the practice has helped enhance visibility, enabled cross firm collaboration & ultimately increased participation

To the Republicans here, how can you sit there and watch the government you elected totally screw this virus response up? Watching an interview with a FEMA admin, and they don’t have a number...

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.

It’s interesting how America spent trillions of dollars on wars and glorifying soldiers when the biggest threat to its wellbeing these days is a pandemic. Let’s invest more in our healthcare sector!
