How to Develop Your Tech Career During an Evolving Professional Climate 


June 25, 2020
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Event Category:

Please join our Tech Careers 1.0 Community for a panel and networking event, “How to Develop Your Tech Career During an Evolving Professional Climate.”

Our panelists will share their insights with early stage tech practitioners  regarding the following:

  • Getting regular “face time” with leaders and managers looks different right now, how do you continue demonstrating value and elevating your brand as a new technology practitioner?
  • Most companies are in crisis mode in light of COVID-19, how do you focus on “survival” while also planning ahead and thinking about your professional development?
  • How have the skillsets and needs leaders are looking for shifted over the last 4 months? What are leaders looking for from emerging tech talent that they may not have been looking for before?
  • What should you be focusing on this year to ensure your skills and abilities are evolving in a way that matches “the new rules” of being successful in a technology career?
  • How do you continue exploring different careers in technology during this “survival mode” atmosphere.


This event is designed for technology practitioners 1-6 years into their technology careers, but all are welcome.  Please bring your questions, passion for networking with peers and senior leaders, and a cold beverage!

Featuring Panelists:

  • Michael Jones, Managing Director at Accenture
  • Erika Johnson, IT Director (supply chain) at Land O’Lakes
  • Chris DuFresne, Technology VP at Allina Health
  • Heidi Hegenbarth, Director of Software Engineering at C.H. Robinson
