She+ Geeks Out Panel: What Growing Your Career in Engineering Really Looks Like
September 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join She+ Geeks Out and Delphix at their beautiful offices in San Francisco for a night of networking, eating and drinking! You’ll walk away with more knowledge, new connections, and a full belly!
This important panel will focus on what growing your career in Engineering really looks like. Whether you’re interested in being an individual contributor, moving to management/VP/C-Suite, or moving to something tangential (Product, QA, UX), we’ve got you covered. We’re bringing together four incredible and insightful women, who will share their wisdom on what it looks like from a variety of perspectives. You’ll learn how to:
Cultivate technical expertise in different areas
Promote yourself internally and externally
Build your personal board of directors with sponsors and mentors
Develop leadership skills as a non-manager
Take on different opportunities and diverse roles
6pm-7pm: Registration, networking, eating, drinking
7pm-8pm: Panel, Q&A & raffle prizes (yes we offer geektastic raffle prizes!)
8pm-9pm: More networking!
Moderated by Natasha Mascarenhas, Reporter at Crunchbase News
Avital Arora, VP, SW Engineering at Salesforce
Manju Abraham, Senior Director of Engineering Operations at Delphix
Nicole Barton, Head of Quality Engineering & Product Support at Thrive Global
Liane Praza, Software Engineer, Infrastructure at Facebook
Can I get a refund?
Yes, up to one week prior to the event! This helps us better manage our waitlist. We are not able to accommodate last minute cancellations since they are tricky from an administrative standpoint. Request a refund here up to one week prior to the event!
When should I arrive?
Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then– while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up and get everything ready before things get going. You’ll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise and that’s no fun for anyone.
Can I transfer my ticket?
We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can’t go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email.
What do I need to bring to an event?
Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. You won’t need to print out the PDF of the ticket, though– we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things.
How do I know if I qualify as a geek? What can I expect?
Take a look at our FAQs on the website!
Where can I park?
All of our events are public transportation-accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use the BestParking website.
Do you have food that’s gluten free/vegetarian/vegan?
We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided!
Thanks to Delphix for sponsoring!
