This week is New Tech City‘s first ever event and it is SOLD OUT. But you can join WNYC and me for “How Tech is Changing the Way Women Work” at The Greene Space online, where we will be streaming the panel LIVE…and not just audio, video too.
When we were planning this gathering months ago, we had no idea just how timely the topic would be: with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book coming out, Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer deciding to ban working from home, and Anne-Marie Slaughter becoming a feminist rockstar.
But we don’t want to rehash old ground, or all the articles you’ve read over the past couple of weeks. So we’re going to hit three topics: digital tools and how to manage them, female entrepreneurs and start-ups, and finally, coding and working in STEM fields and what that can mean for the next generation. And of course, we hope you’ll share YOUR story either here or on Twitter #womentech. I figured if I’m asking everyone to get personal, I might as well explain how I came to the idea of holding this event. Be warned: I mention boobs.
