  • If you're thinking about a career change, you aren't alone. While it can be a daunting prospect (where do I begin? Who do I talk with? What about my resume?), it's absolutely doable. You'll hear from brilliant women who will be able to guide you toward making a successful transition.

    Agenda

    12:00pm-12:30pm: Networking! We’ll have table topics for people to virtually join, up to eight to a table

    How is this going to work?

    This will NOT be a Zoom meeting (yay!)... you'll be able to network in small groups of up to eight people per table prior to and after the webinar. You get to choose where you 'sit' and there will be lots of pre-created topics that will be work and fun-related (furbaby and humanbaby pictures, book ideas, TV show obsessions, all welcome here).

    You'll get all the info on how to access the Airmeet platform through Eventbrite.

    Thanks so much to Buildium for sponsoring!

  • Software Development skills alone won’t advance you up the career ladder. So how do you take a tech education or expertise and turn that into a tech career? We’ll hear from successful individuals on these different paths doing just that. They’ll share their personal stories along with proven strategies to finding mentors, building a resume, networking with others in the industry, and becoming a better technologist.

    This month, we’ll be chatting with Carmen Perez, Software Engineer & Content Creator. Join us as she'll be discussing her journey from finance to becoming a software engineer, interview tips and what projects he is currently working on with her money platform Make Real Cents.

  • Just half of all Americans invest in the stock market, and that percentage is substantially lower among women and people of color. Investing used to be something reserved for certain groups of people, and it was rarely marketed to or made to feel accessible for others. But that's all changing.

    In this session, you'll get an early look at new research from Public.com and Finimize, which explores the habits and behaviors of the next generation of investors. In addition to sharing the current state of investing among young people, we'll also break down common myths about personal finance and investing and explain what the democratization of the stock market means for you.

    Takeaways

    • What is the current state of millennial and Gen Z personal finance and investing trends
    • How the investing experience is becoming more democratized and what that means for you
    • Demo of Public.com's free social investing app, which makes it possible to share ideas with other investors and own fractional shares of thousands of publicly-traded companies and ETFs

  • About this Event:

    Are you fascinated by the process of designing a natural, two-way interaction between a user and a system or machine based on the principles of human-to-human conversation? Do you have an interest in learning how you can get involved with Alexa, Siri, Bixby, Cortina, or Google Assistant to create human connections so valuable that they are part of our everyday lives?

    Join us for an invaluable session about the conversational design framework, and how you can pivot into the field just like the women featured in our case studies.
