The Puget Sound is being driven by the tech industry—a field typically dominated by men. If you’re a woman in the tech world, or are looking to join it, what’s the best way to succeed? Women in Tech is one expert’s answer. Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack (CEO of Fizzmint) will share stories of success from her book, tips on overcoming the boys’ club mentality, field-specific career skills, and easily achievable steps to coming out on top. She’ll be joined in conversation by successful female tech professionals who contributed to the book for a discussion of how they got to where they are and what it’s really like to be a “woman in tech.” Panelists include: Kamilah Taylor (software engineer at LinkedIn), Angie Chang (VP of Hackbright Academy, founder of Women 2.0), Brianna Wu (Co-Founder, CEO, and Head of Development at Giant Spacekat), and Kristin Toth Smith (former CEO of Code Fellows). The conversation will be moderated by Stephen (Stepto) Toulouse, Microsoft/Xbox veteran and currently Director of Hacker Success at HackerOne..
