Transitioning into a new career can be challenging, especially if you do not have the traditional background for that industry. And, despite changes in the tech industry, women and other underrepresented groups are often still marginalized when trying to enter tech careers. With the right support, we believe that you can overcome these obstacles and achieve your career goals.
CityU and Amazon have joined together to promote career pathways and opportunities for women of all educational backgrounds who are looking to enter software and technical roles. In this presentation, attendees will hear from women who have made the transition from nontechnical backgrounds into tech careers. Kristine Harris, a current CityU student and Amazon employee, and Kendra Schraml, a Doctorate in Technology student, will share how her CityU education is helping them to reach career goals.
The webinar will feature:
• Why CityU is different from other potential options
• Kristine Harris, current CityU student and Amazon employee, who will discuss how her Master of Science in Computer Science is helping her to reach her goals
• Kendra Schraml, a current CityU doctoral intechnology student, CityU instructor, and Ms. Wheelchair Washington will discuss her pathway that led her to position as a Technical Project Manager, Senior at USAA.
• Morgan Zantua, CityU Program Director in the School of Technology and Computing, who will discuss some of the tech programs at CityU and how we aim to lower barriers and help women transition into tech roles
