Talener is excited to sponsor ChickTech’s ACT-W Conference in Chicago on October 18th – 20th. Talener will join companies like Microsoft, Walgreens, VistaPrint & Uptake in contributing to this event geared at empowering women in technology roles. This regional event will bring women and men together for workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, networking events, and a career fair. From engineers to designers, executives to technical support; ACT-W strives to open the dialogue between the best and the brightest across industries.
The event will kick off on October 18th with a She Started It documentary panel & discussion. She Started It looks at how females are under-represented in entrepreneurship, highlighting these challenges and the need to find solutions to overcome barriers. October 19th features a kick-off party the night before the main conference. The networking happy hour is a great way for people to get to know one another before the main event. The main conference event takes place at The Chicago School on 10/20. It will include a full day of workshops, sessions, an exhibit fair, and networking.
Tiffany Roesler, Talener’s VP of Leadership & Organizational Development will speak on 10/20 at the Chicago School about “Busting Myths & Negotiating with Style.”
Talener is proud to be a part of this event. It strives to elevate women in technology while promoting STEM-based activities and careers to girls. For the second year, proceeds from the ACT-W Chicago conference will go towards providing STEM education programs to local high school girls through ChickTech.
