Nokia’s Betsy Covell brings to us StrongHer
October 12, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Betsy will share an initiative StrongHer that has begun while working with Senator Ellman to recruit and retain women in Tech. Having considered various concerns that turn young women away from considering careers in Tech, as well as concerns that cause women to leave careers in Tech, StrongHer has come up with a number of approaches to address those concerns. StrongHer is actively looking to engage more women from other Chicago area companies in tackling these issues and is pleased to have this opportunity to share ideas with the women of IEEE WIE and expand the collaboration. Speaker(s): Betsy Covell, Agenda: Looking at how the stereotype of the Tech field has evolved over the years, from ‘women’s work’ to ’20 something anti-social dude living in his mom’s basement’, continuing to evolve that stereotype to include diversity and teamwork. This will be a fun filled sharing session. Do not miss it! Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/284291
