Description

Join Women's Voices in Tech for this special holiday session.

Learn from 2 panel talks consisting of successful women in technology and talent acquisition as they discuss their perspectives on how companies can close the gender gap in the tech industry!

Women programmers are still heavily under represented. Take a peek into any developers meeting and you’ll most likely find one or two women surrounded by room full of men. Lack of diversity in technology is a problem.

Get Inspired by Women Successfully Working in Tech

Hear from Usha Guduri (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory), Jennifer Segal (SpaceX), and Michelle Blackshire (Omaze) how they overcame obstacles, the lessons they learned, and how those challenges have evolved and are different today as viewed through the lens of those just starting out.

Learn How Your Company Can Attract and Retain Female Talent

It's no secret that tech companies are embarrassingly behind the curve when it comes to gender parity in the workplace and the continuing pay gap for women.

Talent Acquisition professionals from Hyperloop One, IMDb/Amazon, and Silicon Beach Talent will share tactics they are implementing to attract, hire and keep skilled female employees.

Find Your Next Big Career Opportunity!

Hyperloop One and IMDb/Amazon are hiring! If you are a UX Designer, Design Technologist, Software Development Manager, Technical Program Manager, Web Developer or Software Engineer and are looking for a new opportunity, you will have your chance to talk with recruiters from these exciting companies!
