From one of our members:

Are you a woman interested in learning how to code? Attend this free Intro to Web Development workshop. It’s Friday night the 4th and all day Saturday the 5th in October. It’s free, and we’ll provide all meals and refreshment so you can focus on learning something new. No prior skills or experience needed. It truly is fun and stress-free. This is a first step to coding success that I want to help you through. Check out dates, times, and register at http://railsbridgetulsa.org. Space is limited!

Thank you to Deanna Farmer, Chief Administrative Officer at Enable Midstream, for serving as today's OKWIT MENTOR. Invaluable "behind the scenes" information shared with our members about reaching the C-Level as a woman in IT, and the trials and tribulations along the way. Overall a great conversation! And thank you to The Hutch on Avondale, for a lovely lunch! If you aren't yet an OKWIT member, these opportunities are priceless, sign up now! https://okwomenintech.org/membership/
