10/06/2017

Hyatt Plaza International Ballroom G

Objective: Guidance
Audience Level: All
Session Type: Panel

There is a myth that you have to be a lone wolf or superheroine in computer science to excel in your career. But as some point out, this idea that you should possess extraordinary powers to get a computer science job, get recognition for your work or get a promotion actually hinders women rather than helps them when they try to live up to the myth. Even Wonder Woman had the Amazonian tribe to support her growth! Come and learn how you can build your ABI.Local tribe when you leave GHC. All career levels welcome.
