Do you aspire to be a C-level officer, senior leader, or technology executive? If so, you must join us for our first Women Leading in Technology event of 2024! You will hear from three technology executives about their career journeys, how they achieved their roles, and challenges they faced.

The ORBIE Awards – a national program recognizing excellence in technology leadership – came to Minnesota in 2018. In 2020, the first woman took home an ORBIE MN CIO Award and, since then, six more accomplished women CIOs have been recognized! Women Leading in Technology is honored to feature a conversation with three of those ORBIE Award winners on Tuesday, February 6!

Join us as WLiT board member & vice chair, Priya Senthilkumar, leads a conversation with distinguished ORBIE Award Winners Rachel Lockett (2020), Mary Lynne Perushek (2022), and our own WLiT board chair, Robin Brown (2021). This facilitated discussion with audience Q&A will cover a host of topics from which senior leaders, middle managers, and hands-on practitioners at any stage of their careers will surely learn. Some of the topics you’ll hear about include:

    • Most impactful lessons learned and advice for other aspiring leaders
    • Ways our panelists have been empowered and now personally empower other women around them
    • Dealing with negative self-talk, imposter syndrome, etc.
    • Strategies for securing board seats, both paid and unpaid
    • Biggest challenges for the next generation of female leaders
