Want to connect with female-identifying technology professionals who want to make change in their lives and professions for the better? Join others in the field to discuss the challenges, joy, and lessons learned at AvramCamp, LITA’s AdaCamp-inspired event. This one-day LITA preconference will allow female-identifying individuals employed in various technological industries an opportunity to connect with others in the field and to collectively examine barriers to success.
This day will follow the unconference model, empowering attendees to determine event themes and topics. AvramCamp will start the day with an engaging overview of imposter syndrome, the feeling that you aren’t actually qualified for the work you are doing and will be discovered as a fraud. Participants will then have the opportunity to propose lightning rounds and session proposals on a variety of topics such as salary negotiation, creating and maintaining inclusive workplaces, and becoming leaders in the technology field. Watch for more program details in the coming weeks!
