Summer Series 2016
July 22, 2016
There is a lot of talk about “leaning in” being the way women can engage more in the workplace. The truth is, we’re asking women to conform to a work environment that was built last century for only ½ the population.
On Friday, July 22, 2016, Milena Berry, Co-Founder and CEO of PowerToFly shared with us how their global platform is revolutionizing work for women in tech.
Milena provided insight into how the business culture is leaning in and becoming more inclusive of women in the workplace. She also shared some key ways you can prepare yourself to get back into the workforce or shift into a new tech role.
