Working in the technology sector comes with its challenges, especially for women who are often outnumbered by men. Four COM alumni will discuss their career experiences working in communication and leadership roles at Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, and the gaming company Playmatics. We’ll explore overcoming imposter syndrome, the importance of female mentorship, how to advocate for yourself in a predominantly male field, and how we can all play a part in empowering more women to join the world of tech.
