A lot of women in tech events are focused at getting women in the door. This is essential, but progression and retention are rarely topics.
We had a panel discussion framed around the successes and accomplishments of the amazing women who’ll be joining us. Topics we discussed include promotions and sponsorship, pay, family, and taking leave. Our panellists come from a variety of backgrounds and have paved the way for their own successful careers, which we hope inspired yours.
