Women Leading in Technology (WLiT) events are open to both women and men who are interested in promoting, educating, empowering, and advancing women in technology throughout Minnesota.

The Minnesota Technology Association (MnTech) and WLiT extend their sincere gratitude to Jana Shortal, Host of Breaking the News on KARE 11, who joined us for an inspiring conversation at WLiT’s 10th Anniversary Celebration event earlier this month. After sharing reflections and memories from the past decade of WLiT, and thoughts about the future of tech for women in our state as a group, Jana joined the audience for a beautifully vulnerable and honest discussion about the trials and tribulations she’s faced in her career as a journalist, as well as her thoughts on life in the post/present COVID era. Jana also took time to answer crowdsourced questions from the community.

Thank you to our valued event sponsors: Digineer, Horizontal Talent, Nutanix, Software Guild, SPS Commerce, Thomson Reuters, and Travelers.

This event was recorded live on Tuesday, August 10, 2021.
