Career Strategies for Women

Why I Started Tech Savvy Women?​

A woman in tech looking for the cliff-notes

I hosted my first Tech Savvy Women event in 2008 with just 12 women. It was something I needed for years, but it took me almost 2 years to get the guts to plan the first gathering.

Today, it’s a thriving LinkedIn community with almost 10,000 members from all over the world.

I started Tech Savvy Women after having kids and realizing that I needed to find a way to balance my career aspirations with my family life. I was shocked at that time that there were not more conversations or even cliff notes for working women to keep everything going in the right direction without losing themselves!

During the early gatherings, I invited women in tech to share their best practices and advice, and those nuggets quickly became a valuable resource for women who were looking to balance their lives and choices that I carefully crafted in my first book, The Working Woman’s GPS.

This has the catalysts for two more books, and today, I’m a frequent speaker for women in tech, women in business, and girls in STEM. I share key career strategies to help women accelerate their careers, align with sponsors, create meaning in work and life, and create a path to board seats and executive positions.

I’m passionate about helping women achieve their full potential, and I believe that Tech Savvy Women is a valuable resource for women who are looking to advance their careers.

If you’re a woman in tech, I invite you to join the Tech Savvy Women community on LinkedIn. It’s a great place to connect with other women in tech, learn from their experiences, and get the support you need to succeed.
