We pick a different topic every year and invite a panel or a speaker to discuss the topic. This year's topic is Women In Tech.
Come join fellow Booth alumni to talk about Women in Tech. Cindy Machles '82 will moderate a panel of Booth graduates who forged unorthodox and successful paths in Tech space. We will focus on navigating a career in Tech outside of traditional hi-tech centers and discuss strategies for entering the Technology from banking, consulting and other "traditional" fields well represented in New York.
After the panel discussion, please stay to network and enjoy an open bar and appetizers in a friendly setting in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. We hope you will join us!
Seats are limited. Register today to reserve your spot!
