I connected/shared my sabbatical aspirations and made some connection to help me get there. I attended the ALIGN presentation which got me thinking about going back to school and finally learning coding.
I got great advice on how to get into cyber security without a technical background.
I am re-energized and re-inspired.
I feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
I learned about a lot of existing resources that need signal boosting.
I am reconnected that I’m not alone.
I want to try lego city scrum.
I know I’m not the only person these days who quits their job without a job lined up and without trying to find anything new right away.
I am considering going back to school.
I found that I’m closer to my career goals than I thought!
I have a good feeling about the future of women in technologists in Seattle.
As a result of today I realize that there are a lot of strong women in the tech field who want to be leaders and make a difference.
Check out a new prototyping tool.
I got a chance to meet new people and have great conversations. Coffee+conversation=creative flow of thoughts.
I have a new plan for STEM.
I believe I have added energy (reached activation energy) in pursuing a new career path.
I am confident I am going to ROCK on my new promotion.
I met another lady (aka a unicorn) in IT security. I learned new resources to keep my skills updated.
I’ve realized how supportive and encouraging of the next generation of female computer scientists or IT professionals this group is.
I was inspired.
I networked and problem solved with a group of diverse women from a broad range of organizations – realizing that we are all trying to tackle similar issues/topics/questions. It was inspiring and motivating in so many ways.
I learned some major perspectives on issue affecting women in technology today.
I feel a little less isolated, a little more hopeful, and a lot more inspired.
I’m going to try to get more involved in tech education groups especially for girls and do more women in technology networking. Increase visibility of women in tech.
I know about a promising MS in computer science program. I met a former co-worker. I can put someone in touch with someone who does a job she may want to do. I learned some options for training myself. I am going to invite people next year.
I feel lucky to have met so many smart women and I have resources to share with my women’s group at work around determining mission statements and actionable goals.
I want to try to learn how to code.
