This event is intended to help alums interested in tech as a potential career, working in tech, or looking to make a career pivot into tech. All panelists included have made career shifts into the technology industry from seemingly “non-traditional” backgrounds, i.e. not a developer. The goal is to demystify the industry, enlighten attendees on the opportunities available to them, particularly those that are in non-technical fields, and to encourage more women to consider careers in tech.
