DESCRIPTION:
As Women in IT Careers, we face a number of challenges every day! At the NERCOMP 2014 Annual Conference, the Women in IT Leadership birds of a feather table asked for an opportunity to work together on tackling some of the key issues facing us in our careers. We heard you and here it is. We are bringing in an expert speaker to get us started and share her story. You will hear how she got to where she is, the challenges she faced and what tools and techniques she used to keep forging ahead. We will also revisit the concept of learning when it is appropriate to speak up or lean in and be heard and other techniques for “finding your seat at the table.” In the afternoon, we will work together to brainstorm tips and techniques for dealing with trending issues and our own personal challenges as Women in IT.

Objectives:
As a participant in this workshop you will:
• Understand how risks can fuel for your career, create opportunities and opening doors
• Be able to locate tools that will help you identify your personal strengths and skills
• Be able to appreciate what moving into management might mean for you
• Identify what challenges you face in their career and how you might overcome them
• Understand how trending issues continue to impact the perception of Women in IT Careers and how to get beyond them
• Meet and connect with other Women in IT who will provide support and networking connections
