SAN FRANCISCO: Navigating a Career in Tech

Date: 5/3/2017
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Women currently occupy just 25% of the technology industry, but that number is on the rise. More and more Barnard graduates are entering the sector in a myriad of roles. From software engineers to talent management to sales, Barnard alumnae are taking the tech industry by storm.

Please join fellow Bay Area Barnard and Seven Siblings alumnae for an evening featuring a panel of women working in technology-based fields, followed by a networking reception. Learn about a variety of tech careers and the paths these women took to get there. This event is open to all alumnae and guests, whether currently in the technology industry or interested in exploring these fields.

The event will be moderated by Christine Valenza Shin ’84, Barnard Alumnae Career Counselor. Panelists include:

•  Hosanna Fuller ’16, Software Engineer, SurveyMonkey
•  Lindsey Kremer ’11, Technical Program Manager, Facebook
•  Meg Withgott, Chief Technology Officer, Panafold
•  Merci Grace, Director of Product for Growth, Slack
•  Arquay Harris, Director of Engineering for Growth, Slack
•  Kristy Tillman, Head of Communications Design, Slack
