📚 Book Club: The Adventures of Women in Tech
For our March Book Club and Women's History Month, Women Who Code Portland and IEEE Oregon Women in Engineering (WIE) will be reading and discussing "The Adventures of Women in Tech: How We Got Here and Why We Stay" by Alana Karen.
The Adventures of Women in Tech delves into why we join tech, the challenges we face, and the skills and support we need to succeed and stay in an often challenging environment. A 20-year tech company veteran and leader, Alana Karen brilliantly and systematically replaces what we think we know about women in tech with stories of what it's honestly like to join, lead, and thrive in today's top technology companies. In 12 chapters filled with intimate stories, insights, and advice from women working in technology companies and start-ups, Alana Karen demonstrates that we all belong in tech.
