September 22: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 77

In Partnership with the Women In Tech Virtual Career Event on September 24th

Happy Tuesday! The loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is on everyone’s minds and hearts. She was a role model for many and has achieved so much in her life, especially when it comes to women’s rights. She smashed a bunch of ceilings and lead with kindness first and foremost. We can learn a lot from this incredible woman and there’s a post dedicated to that in the resources ❤️

I think that women should come together as a community more than ever these days. And this is why publishing another issue of Women in Tech Weekly brings me so much joy. Join me in celebrating some awesome women in this issue as well as learning about some great resources!

If you’d like to submit anything for next week’s issue, please do so using the submission form at the bottom of this post.
