Women in Tech Weekly Issue 9
It’s that day of the week again and I’m very excited to share this week’s news and resources!
Enjoy, you beautiful humans:
Sara got a new position in New York!
In her own words:
“I was working as a web developer engineer in France and I applied for a job in New York. I had to do a training in aris for 3 months and now I’m finally starting my new position in New York as a front integrator and publisher operations. I’m so excited for that, at the same time I’m so motivated to work on some personal projects (websites and apps). More celebrations to come… “
My new work station… I'm going with a Mac I guess… That would take me some time to get use to it… 🙄🙄🙄 . . . . #girl #girlcoder #girldeveloper #trendyCoder #womenintech #girlswhocode #womenwhocode #women #code #codelife #devlife #designinspiration #developer #webdev #webdeveloper #coding #programming #work #workstation #mac #macbook #macbookpro #apple

Wanda got into the post-bacc Comp Sci program she’s been applying to all year for the summer term!
In her own words:
“After a year of applying to schools and jobs without a technical degree, I got accepted into OSU’s online Computer science program! It’s a second bachelor’s degree so I’m so excited to pivot into a new career!!”
Vishakha started an internship in AI!
In her own words:
“My 3rd internship (and 5th tech opportunity) of my college career is a startup-casual environment which will teach me more about teamwork that my corporate internships could not provide.”
“Wdym Womxn in Tech have a 𝘥𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘥𝘷𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘨𝘦?” Well, only 𝟮% of all US Venture Capital (investment $$) went to Female led startups in 2018. 𝟭𝟮.𝟮% went to Mixed (male & female) led startups while 𝟴𝟱.𝟲% went to Male led startups. . When the only mainstream topics Womxn have, are associated with confidence, I thought… hmm, 𝘛𝘦𝘤𝘩 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘸𝘰𝘮𝘹𝘯 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘧𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵. I recently published a YouTube video putting this to the test. (Link in Bio!) It’s a makeup video… 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗕𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗶𝗻. . 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 is Blockchain, 𝘩𝘰𝘸 does Blockchain work, 𝘸𝘩𝘺 is Blockchain used & 𝘩𝘰𝘸 people are innovating the Blockchain to integrate it in society. I casually answer these questions while contouring my nose and patting my face with powder. If we can’t bring the 𝘄𝗼𝗺𝘅𝗻 to the 𝘁𝗲𝗰𝗵, let’s bring the 𝘁𝗲𝗰𝗵 to the 𝘄𝗼𝗺𝘅𝗻. . 📸 @alvintran.photography 🙌🏽 phenomenal photographer JUST LOOK
