Galvanize our global community members to step into the leadership mindset, to take responsibility, and turn ideas into actions. We would like to help you make an impact by taking initiatives and influencing others.
Join us every month, on the second Friday at 12:00 PM ET (4:00 PM GMT), for an hour-long conversation. Every call will feature a guest speaker, an experienced leader in the technology world, who will share insights and answer questions.
We are excited to have Karen Catlin as our Guest Speaker for July’s call.
After spending 25 years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears. Today, Karen is a vocal advocate for inclusion, a leadership coach, and a keynote speaker. She’s the author of Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces and coauthor of Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking.
In this month’s fireside chat, Bushra (host) will talk to Karen about her career journey and what catalyzed her to switch from being a vp of engineering to a leadership coach for women in tech. They’ll also discuss themes Karen sees in her coaching practice, and her work to create a more inclusive tech industry where everyone can grow their careers and thrive.
