Testing The Effect of Gender Identity in Tech
Our conversation will offer a glimpse into the experience of transitioning gender identity while building a career in tech.
Join us for a virtual fireside chat as Lisa Kostova speaks with Natalie Egan and Joseph Schneier to discover what each of them learned before and after their transition, and how their experience in tech shifted.
But more importantly, we will learn how women in tech can empower themselves in the face of social conditioning and unconscious bias, and how men, women and other gender identities can create a more inclusive environment for all.
