IEEE #WIEWednesday Virtual Track, brought to you by Ericsson
Women on Web - How to Utilize Social Media to Achieve Success and Build Your Brand
Register to watch the live event on Wednesday, May 9 @ 1:00 pm EDT/USA (GMT-4)
The recent decade has seen issues that have influenced women – equal pay, sexual harassment, representation on technical and corporate boards, just to name a few. The number of women in web and STEM careers has grown significantly over the past 10 years, but still females aren't becoming as identifiable as known male figures such as Steve Jobs. The challenge is to make people believe that a “she” can also be a techie, a web-genius, or a founder of a technical company. But it is possible, with the proper guidance to achieve the success they deserve and build their brand to boldly share career accomplishments.
This virtual session will uncover ways and explore processes where women need to utilize the ubiquity of web technology and social media to make their position equal to men throughout the world. We will brainstorm ideas that matter, thoughts that force contemplation, and words that have gone unspoken...until now!
