From HR execs to tech managers, we all want our organizations to attract top talent, build cutting-edge products, and foster collaborative teams that dream big. But sometimes organizations find themselves facing high turnover, uninspired staff, and mundane offerings that don’t revolutionize the market. What can company leadership do?

Gender diversity is one crucial key to overcoming these obstacles. 

Join us on Wednesday, March 29th at 12pm EDT / GMT-4 for our latest webinar on How to Build an Equitable Workplace for Women in Tech, featuring special guest Kristen Twining from Proofpoint and Jobsity’s Vanessa Romero.

Our panelists will discuss:

  • Kristen’s perspective on navigating a career in tech- Obstacles she faced while making a name for herself- How orgs empowered her to do her best work- Resources she wishes she’d had along the way

  • Gender discrimination in tech organizations- Different forms discrimination can take (not just harassment!)- How bias against women hurts efficiency and product value- Real-world examples of sexism, how our panelists addressed them, & the supports that would have made it easier

  • Imposter syndrome’s effects on women in tech- The costs of having staff who second-guess their abilities- Ways imposter syndrome can creep into teams unintentionally- How to inspire women to take on ambitious projects

  • The importance of values-driven careers- How to help women bring their best selves to work- The cost of a woman feeling misaligned with her unique purpose- The org-wide benefits of ensuring women are happy with their career trajectories
