This conversation features women in tech who have benefited from receiving and giving mentoring, but it's really for anyone who is looking for a hand up or to offer one. Our experts will share their experiences and talk about the importance of mentoring — though that it's not for everyone — how to find the right mentor and mentee for you, and how it's an important part of building a career in tech.
So grab your cuppa and join the conversation for the second episode of WIT: Women in Tech! We are talking to four awesome women in tech -- Tammy Bütow, SRE (site reliability engineering) and chaos engineering specialist at Gremlin; Ana Medina, chaos engineer at Gremlin (formerly Uber); Charu Sharma, CEO of Next Play an AI tool that helps companies connect their employees internally for mentoring; Etel Sverdlov, director of developer community and first hire at Digital Ocean; and Prima Virani, senior security engineer at Marqueta.
Their roles in tech benefit from a wealth of experience working with and securing those systems. But you usually have to have already worked with those systems to then be able to get jobs working with those systems -- a struggle for any junior-level job, but a particularly strong one in the tech space. This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.
Join us (or sign up to listen to the recording later) to learn the best way to find a mentor or mentee/mentoree and how to leverage that relationship so you're both getting the most out of it. You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits. And you'll hear personal stories from these women who have built solid careers in tech on the shoulders of experience and support.

Under the GDPR, consent must be obtained in an understandable and easily digestible format, using clear and simple language. By offering people genuine choice and control over how you use their data, it helps you build trust and enhance your reputation.
The problem for a lot of businesses is that their legacy systems usually don’t document the level of data required to prove that a valid, unambiguous consent or contractual acceptance was obtained. Manual processes and paper plague the most common transactions and introduce friction in the moments that matter most to their business.

Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.
·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
·Development in background and credit check compliance
·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter
