Design Thinking Workshop: Strategies to Retain Women in Tech Roles

March 27 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate Women’s History Month! Let’s come together to network and discuss how we can effectively retain top female talent in tech.

Gender diversity has long been proven to increase growth and performance in an organization. How do you create impact in your company? Join this workshop to create strategies that will address bottlenecks in your company to foster gender diversity, innovation, and positive work culture within tech companies. In this meeting, you will be led through a design thinking workshop, identifying key issues and bright ideas important to you. You will identify how your organization can implement innovative ways to retain its top female employees.

Design Thinking Workshop

Bring everyone together to clearly identify burgeoning issues, then define a clear approach to bring back to your organization. Before the session begins, align everyone with shared goals. Small groups will be assigned to discuss these shared goals and how to acheive them.

Thank you to IBM women’s group for hosting this meeting.
