Return to Tech

Women leave the technology industry at a rate that is 45% higher than men. Research by shows that women are exasperated with slow job growth, poor management, unequal pay and inherent gender bias that alienates them from advancement opportunities.

If you, like many professional women, took a career break by choice or frustration, and are anticipating a return to tech, join Athena as we explore the opportunities and pitfall. Hear from women who have overcome the challenges of leaving and re-entering the workforce and other advisors who will help you on this journey. If you are an employer, come to learn how you can retain and engage women in tech.

This program will open with a brief keynote by Intuit's Tracy Stone and will be followed by a panel discussion. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Corporate programs that help women re-matriculate into the tech workforce
  • How to position yourself after a career gap, on paper and in interviews
  • Weighing the pros and cons of re-entering the workforce at a lower level
  • Keeping your career on the upward trajectory, without sacrificing your personal goals
  • Avoiding burnout to stay engaged on your career path
