git hired --force "Women and Non Binary Humans in Tech: Austin"
Getting hired in tech for folks who do not look like the common media depiction of a "hacker" can be an even more intimidating challenge than learning to code.
As we celebrate Women in History month Twilio is delighted to be teaming up with
Austin Hispanic Hackers,
Women Who Code Austin,
and other local organizers to host this event on strategies underrepresented developers can implement to stack the deck in our favor.
Because if you're a woman or non binary human in tech - You are making history.
Confirmed speakers and mentors include:
Margaret Staples from Twilio
Jenna Ritten from IBM and Women in Tech Detroit
CC Yang from Indeed and Women Who Code Austin
Kelsey Huse from Pingboard
There will be lightning talks from local developers on valuable skills and perspectives which may help you succeed in your next job hunt including vital tech skills, resume formatting, finding opportunities, getting hiring managers interested, successfully navigating interviews, and tips for negotiating offers.
Also opportunities for:
resume review - bring your draft!
This is a free event hosted by Twilio in partnership with Austin Hispanic Hackers, Women Who Code Austin, ChickTech: Austin, Capital Factory, and other local organizers: Dinner and refreshments provided.
Talks will be captioned by White Coat Captioning.
