Is your career taking you where you want to go? Do you know where you want to be 5 to 10 years from now? What if you could design your career to fit the life you want? Find answers to these and other career-related questions at our "Design Thinking Your Career" workshop led by Tech Ladies DC City Organizers Ana Bello and Cynthia Bell.
Welcome Tech Ladies in Detroit to our kick-off event! We'll be networking, playing some ice-breaker games and getting to know each other better in the coffee shop's Garage Office space. We'll also discuss what you're hoping to see for future Tech Ladies events.
Summer may be officially behind us, but we're not ready to give up our weeknight socializing just yet! A Thinking Ape has generously invited us to network on their spacious rooftop patio (weather permitting, of course—but their inside space is great too if needed). Join us for snacks and drinks while sparking up new connections and conversations with other talented local ladies working in tech.
This Online Event will teach you to work effectively with developers. Whether you're in product, design, marketing, customer success, or any other non-technical field, learning the basics of how engineering teams work and communicate is an essential skill for effective cross-functional communication.
