I’m off to the HR Technology Conference and I want to invite you to participate in a very timely twitterchat. The folks at #SHRM are hosting a special technology themed #nextchat where we are going to discuss women in technology-based STEM careers. We’ll chat about how HR can work inside and outside their organizations to attract, develop and support more women in technical careers.
Please join @shrmnextchat at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT on October 11 for #Nextchat with me (@dawnhburke) and five other fantastic women in HR: 2017 HR Technology Conference presenter Cecile Alper-Leroux @cecilehcm; Heather Bussing @HeatherBussing, Heather Kinzie @HeatherKinzie, Jennifer Payne @JennyJensHR and Robin Schooling @RobinSchooling.
The women in technology has been not only top of mind, but also top of the headlines lately. Remember in August, when Google engineer James Damore posted a 10-page memo claiming that women may be unsuited for tech jobs. Although many thought his thoughts off-point, many agreed.
