To celebrate the International Women’s Day happening worldwide on March 8th, we are extremely happy to welcome back Maria Altyeva to discuss a major topic of our industry: Empowering Women in Tech.
The tech industry is arguably one of the most attractive sectors in which to work, given that most companies (new or old) will need to get technology-driven. It is unfortunately also a fact there has been a significant gender gap in software engineering and tech entrepreneurship.
Through her extensive experience in the industry, Maria will share her journey and offer actionable tips and resources to prepare you to get involved in the tech space or better organize your workflow. Come and learn practical tools, get industry insights, meet like-minded people and share your experience. ApéroTalk is our event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
• 7:00 pm – Doors open
