Career Changers Panel and Happy Hour

Come learn about the experiences of four GDI members who went on to make successful career changes into technology during a special Career Changer Panel and Happy Hour for Philly Tech Week 2018. They'll share methods, insights, and advice to help you plan your own transition into tech. Then, stay for a happy hour to mingle with our panelists and meet fellow aspiring career changers and GDI members.

This year, we will also have career change mentors available to chat with to make sure you can get all of your burning questions answered!

We know that attending a meetup can be a little stressful, especially if you're new to GDI or are attending alone, so we are making our panelists, career change mentors, and GDI organizers easily identifiable. Please don't hesitate to say hello or ask us any questions!

Our panelists:

UPMA SINGH, Interaction Designer; BETH DICKERSON, Front End Software Engineer; KATE MEDAGLIA, UX Designer; NAYONNA PURNELL, Software Engineer

Our mentors:

AMBER BURGESS, Project Manager; CHRISTINE CUNNIFF, iOS Developer; CANDACE WORTHEN, Web Developer; ADRIENNE McDONNELL, Software Engineer

GDI is gender inclusive and open to all who would like to join. We hope to see you there!

All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct (http://www.girldevelopit.com/codeofconduct).
