Here is more information about this live chat with Glenn:
As a woman in technology I have watched my fellow womxn be pressured to take on management roles - which can be difficult to decline if you don't have an alternative plan. However, managing people comes with a completely different skills set than the individual contributor role many of us start our careers with. I hope this talk gives you an opportunity to evaluate if management or individual contributor is a better career path for you and next steps to get there.

Jasmine Harvey is pursuing her MBA while working full-time as a buyer for Viasat, a global communications and satellite internet company. Balancing home, work, and school while maintaining a 3.9 grade point average has been quite a challenge. Jasmine had a perfect 4.0 until she took one of the hardest classes in her program, Managerial Economics and Global, during this COVID pandemic. She finished a full 15 percentage points above the class average, but was still 0.6 points away from an "A".
