Zero to [HER]O
Please join us at DFW ATW in January and Learn to Build Your Value + Become an Asset in Your Tech Career
Far too many of our nation’s best and brightest women in tech work as hard as they can to advance their careers without really understanding how important it is to build their value and communicate their worth. It’s time to teach these women how to work smarter, not harder, to become more effective and invaluable to the companies they work with. Lauren shares her personal story of going from zero network, zero skills, and zero job prospects to becoming a highly valued, top engineer with global connections in just two short years. You’ll come away with steps you can take to immediately start building your value and become an asset at work and in your tech career.
