About this event

We're kicking off our 2021 events with a career empowerment talk hosted by our local Women Tehcmakers. Kiley Carson and Sherry Yang are introducing Lauren Hasson to Calgary and the wider communities. In this hybrid event, we are inviting our local and remote community members to join us at a theatre to view a live presentation from Lauren Hasson along with a movie screening.

Zero to [Her]o

Learn to Build Your Value + Become an Asset in Your Tech Career

Far too many of our best and brightest women in tech work as hard as they can to advance their careers without really understanding how important it is to build their value and communicate their worth. It’s time to teach these women how to work smarter, not just harder, to become more effective and invaluable to the companies they work with.

Lauren shares her personal story of going from zero network, zero skills, and zero job prospects to becoming a highly valued, top engineer with global connections in just two short years. Women will come away with steps they can take to immediately start building their value and become an asset at work and in their own tech careers.
