Do you have a future in Technology?

 

Oklahoma Women in Technology invites Oklahoma career exploring women (HS graduates + High School students grades 10-12) to join us for day filled with fun activities, great speakers, inspiring local women in Tech, and SO MANY great resources all in 1 place to openly explore your possible future in TECHNOLOGY. This event is FREE thanks to our generous sponsors.

 

This event is aimed to educate career exploring women in Oklahoma about the breadth of career opportunities in STEM and specifically the Technology field. We want to inspire diverse enrollment into the array of technology training programs available to them, and to cheer their participation in the IT workforce. In recognition of the ongoing gender gap in IT within the classroom and in the workforce, we specifically market this event to women who are either a HS graduate OR a high school student (grades 10-12). While this event targets women, we openly welcome men who want to engage in the conversation and contribute to a more equitable, diverse society.

 


This event is made possible by our corporate sponsors, Cox, Devon Energy, ONE Gas, and also by our event sponsor, Cox.

Behind the Scenes Mentor Session (OKC) 11:30 am
Behind the Scenes Mentor Session (OKC) @ The Hutch on Avondale
Sep 4 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Use your MemberID to access tickets! OKWIT’s Behind The Scenes Mentor Sessions are a great opportunity to meet with IT leaders in a small-group setting. Often we have set for ourselves the goal of being a manager, director, or a CXO because the path to that role seems logical for one’s career. Yet do we really understand the day-to-day activities and challenges of holding such a position? What is it really like to head a department or lead a division? What skills, knowledge, and credentials are needed to sit in that seat? Were there specific preparations to obtain the position? And once in the role, how does one traverse the day? This session mentor will share “a day in the life of their role” and what it took to get there and retain the position. Please Note: Lunch will be provided by OKWIT. You must be an OKWIT Advocate Member or OKWIT Contributing Member to register. However, as one of these members – you may register for yourself plus one (Your Plus One does not have to be an OKWIT member). Seating is limited to 15, so be sure to register early.
