Event Details

There are a number of issues women in tech face.  While many panels and talks focus on chatting about these issues, there are very few that dig into solutions. Working hard alone isn't sufficient to get to the top.  The purpose of the femgineer forum is to highlight and address the issues prevalent in today's tech companies, and give women solution for dealing with them.  In this 90 minute session we will cover the following:

  • How to interview at male dominated tech companies
  • How to communicate concerns  with supervisors
  • How to craft an ASK regarding a promotion, pay raise, or change in role

You'll walk away with strategies you can use to communicate in a compelling manner with your team and supervisors.

 

This event is for all women in tech in any role: developers, designers, product managers, sales, and marketing.

 


About the Host: Poornima Vijayashanker, Femgineer.com

This year Poornima celebrates 5 years of blogging on Femgineer.com, where she writes about startup lifes, building technology products, and the life of a femgineer and founder.  The mission of Femgineer is to build female-friendly tech companies, and to encourage more women into STEM careers.

Poornima originally graduated from Duke University with a double degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science.  After graduating she headed out to Silicon Valley, where she first worked for Synopsys as an R&D Engineer, and started working towards a Masters in CS at Stanford.  She left her Masters to join Mint.com in 2006 as the second employee, and stayed until its Intuit Acquisition for $170M in late 2009.  In January 2010, she left Mint.com to start BizeeBee.com, inspired by a 6 year yoga practice.  Aside from being a coder, entrepreneur, speaker, and mentor to junior engineers, Poornima is an avid traveler, foodie, and a competitive Bikram yogini.
