About This Event

Join us for energetic panel discussion, networking opportunities, light bites and refreshments.

Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, the United Women in Business Foundation (UWIB) and General Assembly will host local leaders to explore new intersections between entrepreneurship, negotiation, career development, and technology. Together, we discuss how their careers have been impacted by the rise of tech, ways they’ve adapted and innovated along the way, and what they expect to see in the future.

What You’ll Take Away: Gain insight and inspiration from a panel of experts and hear first-hand how entrepreneurship, negotiation, career development and technology can be maximized to invest in yourself. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.

Featured Experts: Leaders in the local community will break down the biggest challenges and opportunities they face and explain how their teams adapt to the fast pace of innovation.

Join the discussion along with GA and a panel of trailblazers in entrepreneurship, negotiation, career development, and technology. We'll learn their stories and hear what they're doing to disrupt their respective industries.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Maintaining an open dialogue about how you should be investing in your future and being able to elaborate on ways for collaboration in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.

Agenda:

  • Check-in & Light Refreshments 6:00 - 6:30 pm
  • Panel/Lighting Talks 6:30 - 8:00 pm
  • Q&A and Networking 8:00 - 8:30 pm
