Technical Leaders Monthly Call – June

June 14, 2019 · 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Community Anitab.org

Our Goal

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 Heidi Williams as our Guest Speaker for June’s call.

Heidi Williams is CTO and Co-Founder of tEQuitable, a confidential platform addressing workplace bias, discrimination, and harassment. In 2016 she founded WEST, a mentorship program for mid-career women. Before that, she was VP of Platform Engineering at Box and spent 17 years at Adobe. Heidi has a B.S. in Computer Science from Brown University.

Join us for a fireside format chat, where Bushra (host) and Heidi will discuss various aspects of leadership, how to develop it, and different ways it can be expressed. We will also explore how the leadership mindset has helped Heidi along her career journey to becoming a CTO and Co-Founder of a startup focused on improving workplace culture.
