Being a Woman in Engineering is a challenging path that you can own. Setting goals is the first step in taking ownership of your career path and mapping where you want to go. Goals are the steps on the way. They empower us to do more, help us conquer the obstacles we encounter, and although they may be challenging they reward us with the accomplishment.
Any time in one's career is a good opportunity to start, whether you just finished college, received your first promotion, are returning from maternity leave, changed jobs, or just want to be better.The questions we ask are where to start? How to set the right goals? How to make sure you are on track? And what kind of tools can help?
In this talk I will be happy to answer any questions you have.We will start with career objectives, move to setting SMART goals, discuss OKRs as a great mechanism to manage goals, and the power of using a SAAS solution to collaborate with your supporters. We will be looking at different obstacles women experience throughout their career in tech and how to plan and manage those obstacles while keeping on track with one's career path.
