Who can see your viewing activity?
You were right!
I was brought to you by the letter Q!
I loved Sesame Street :)
I’m a Z too :)
We only steal, er, recruit the best leaders!
Woot Woot! UC Women in Tech!
I think it starts from School - Boys tend to take computer, engineering or maths Girls are not encouraged to pursue these classes
Also, when they do express an interest, people will often question them about why they want to pursue those subjects. Questions like, "What do you want to study that?" It should be enough that they're interested, not that they know what they might want to do later on down the line.
@Kathleen - I second that. Enthusiasm and curiosity will get you a lot farther than rote knowledge.
I’m a fellow at SV Academy, they focus on getting people of underserved populations into non-coding tech! I am a neurodivergent queer woman and am loving it! Learning so much!
60% of SV grads are women, and 49% are black and latinx
@Katharine Alsop (and others) - Are you familiar with the Diana Initiative (conference focused on helping encourage people who are underrepresented in cyber security) I went to their conference the first time this year, and it was a really impressive group.
Thank you for having this webinar. I am working towards leadership and would love to know how you've handled leaders (men) who are quick to dismiss your ideas, don’t allow you to have a seat at the table or talk down your skill set? Thank you!
@Andrea McColl, I am definitely looking that up now! Thank you!
And will share at SV
EDUCAUSE has a great mentoring program and I believe all UC employees can join for free: https://www.educause.edu/careers/special-topic-programs/mentoring
😨 now I hope I haven't been a target at one of Jane's punching session
Those of us who work for Jane appreciate that she works out her frustrations away from work 😁
For people at UCSF: https://techldp.ucsf.edu/ and https://amp.ucsf.edu/mentorship-program
Also Affinity Groups @UCSF- APASA for AAPI, Black Caucus, CLCA (Latinx), NAHA (Native American), UFA (Filipinx), LGBTQ Committee, Status of Women, etc. If a group doesn't exist there are resources to start one.
I’ll say it: some men need to be coached to give others space, and I’ve appreciated that coaching
UCLA Health has WITH-U (Women in Tech in Health), which is a great group.
@Peter Weber...…. Where is this UFA? Do you have more info for me? I am a first gen Filipino Am, currently programmer at UC Davis. The last time I was with at least 3 female Filipino Americans was in college when I was at San Francisco State for my BS in Computer Science.
@Donna https://filipinx.ucsf.edu/ feel free to reach out to me and happy to connect to people I know at UCSF that are part of this group
