Challenges and Solutions for Women in Tech, presented by Pluralsight + PowerToFly
Are you obsessed with learning? Do you love keeping up with the latest tech trends? Are you passionate about helping others expand their knowledge? If so, PowerToFly would love to have you attend an invite-only evening with the women tech leaders of Pluralsight.
Pluralsight is making it easy to keep up with technology through expert-led courses, assessments, and tools in fields such as software development, IT ops, data, and cyber security. We will explore how women can get into technology, stay in technology and re-enter technology. What are current barriers keeping women away from tech or not encouraging them to stay? What can we do to raise awareness and understanding of the problems women are facing and find solutions to help with these problems.
The event will be held on Wednesday, November 28th from 6pm to 8pm at Pluralsight's Boston office, located at 60 State Street, Suite 800, Boston, MA.

How to Grow Your Career Without Leaving Your Company: A Conversation with Greenhouse's Lauren Allanson
Lauren Allanson has had three jobs in five years and hasn't had to move offices once.
That's because all of her recent career changes have been at Greenhouse, the hiring software company, headquartered in New York. Lauren began working there as a recruiter, then moved into product management before becoming a project manager.
This edition of our career spotlight series features Caitlin Flint, Group Design Manager at Intuit.
Caitlin's career began at the Advancement Project, a civil rights nonprofit focused on large-scale systemic change to remedy inequity. There, she had the opportunity to work on mapping software for California's first-ever open redistricting process, which ignited her passion for improving people's lives at scale. This made her a natural fit for a role on Intuit's design team, where she has worked for the past six years. Caitlin earned her B.A. in Design from the University of California in Davis, where she specialized in Visual Communications.

A Conversation with Surescripts' Terri Policy
If evening is rolling around and Terri Policy hasn't yet met her step goal, her Apple Watch dings at her. "I get this little cheering on at the end of the day saying to me, 'You can still do it!' And I think, of course I can still do it. I don't need those little pats on the back to meet my goals, particularly when it is something that is important to me," says Terri.
