How Tech Changed the Way I Live and Work

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 12:00 AM

This week is New Tech City‘s first ever event and it is SOLD OUT. But you can join WNYC and me for “How Tech is Changing the Way Women Work” at The Greene Space online, where we will be streaming the panel LIVE…and not just audio, video too.

When we were planning this gathering months ago, we had no idea just how timely the topic would be: with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book coming out, Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer deciding to ban working from home, and Anne-Marie Slaughter becoming a feminist rockstar.

But we don’t want to rehash old ground, or all the articles you’ve read over the past couple of weeks. So we’re going to hit three topics: digital tools and how to manage them, female entrepreneurs and start-ups, and finally, coding and working in STEM fields and what that can mean for the next generation.

Of course, we hope you’ll share YOUR story either here or on Twitter #womentech.

Listen or watch at 9am on March 19. Open your favorite browser and see or hear the event streaming live. Better yet, have a listening coffee klatch with your co-workers or friends and discuss afterwards.  Or come back later…we’ll also have a podcast of the event up soon. Flex-work, flex-media consumption.
