Path & Impact as a Technical Woman

Why am I here? Where am I going? Is this all worth it? These are the types of questions that we may find ourselves asking along our journey as tech workers. Regardless of which stage you're at, these questions are crucial to answer in order to have a meaningful career.

Join us on August 9 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View as we explore these questions and more at SheCodes, a conference that brings together talented technical women from around the Bay Area to learn and discuss how to take charge of our chareers and have maximum impact in the work we are doing every day. Our one day of sessions and workshop will provide inspiration, connections, and practical takeaways on how we can effectively manage and thrive holistically in our technical careers.


Our speakers are technical women who have made significant impacts at companies including Mozilla, Mint.com, Microsoft, Google, Tellme Networks, IBM, and more. They will share stories from their own paths and advice on how to build careers of impact.
