Challenges and Solutions for Women in Tech, presented by Pluralsight + PowerToFly
If you are a tech professional living in the the Boston area and you are interested in attending the event, please email email@example.com for an invitation.
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.
