On February 23rd, Talener Group launched its networking event program focused on promoting female professionals in the technology space, Women Inspire Technology. The kick-off event was led by Tiffany Roesler, Group Manager at Talener, and was held at the company’s NYC headquarters. The event was well attended by women in technology who came together to network, build a support system, discuss challenges and opportunities, as well as further develop and cultivate their leadership skills. One important skill focused on was the importance of learning to take pride in, and even bragging about their accomplishments.
The featured speaker at the inaugural event was Jane Silberstein, QA Manager at Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. Jane provided insights from her own successes and challenges as a woman in the technology industry, as well as spoke on the importance of creating a community for women in the field to share ideas and discuss leadership development. She commented on the amount of younger faces who have a lot to benefit from a group like WIT.
Our next WIT event will take place Thursday, March 29th at 7pm at Talener’s NYC office. Our hope is that through this continued grass-roots initiative, women professionals will inspire each other to reach higher and speak louder.
