So, you’ve been working as an engineer/developer on the technical ladder for 7, 10 or 15 years and are feeling like you’re reaching your max potential on the technical ladder. Promotions are getting harder to get, keeping up with the barrage of new technology, languages, tools, processes are syphoning more of your development time and it’s affecting your life, sleep, eating habits and, most importantly, your sanity and stress factor.
What do you do next? How do you keep going? Is this the end as you know it and you end up joining the ranks of the myriad women before you who have left the industry to “spend time with family”?

In this panel, we will discuss what the path forward could look like for you and others like you. Whether it’s sticking to the technical through constant re-skilling or switching to management, lateral moves and more. Get tips and tricks to win in the career chess game – it is not just the winning that matters but how you play the game. Join us!
