   You don’t become

   stronger by       



Life, like technology, moves fast. You make the best decisions you can with the information you have at the time. You experiment, gather data, analyze it, iterate it, and try to make an even better decision next time.
Sometimes the experiment fails, and the feedback is rough. Sometimes the experiment is successful, and you do not feel worthy to take credit. Whatever the result, Own IT! 

Join Women 4 Technology as we spend a few hours exploring what it means to:

Know your worth

Do it scared

Take the leap

Practice self-awareness

Turn setbacks into strengths

Transform fear into courage

Decide who to disappoint next

Find out in real life and in real time how to use your personality, career challenges, and life experience to own your role, take control of your life, and create your future.
