ACM-W global leadership presents “Celebrating Technology Leaders“, a webinar series highlighting the stories of successful technical women (trans- or cis-woman) or non-binary persons who are leading diverse careers in the technology industry. During these hour-long conversations, we provide career coaching and leadership advice to students and early career professionals. We aim to inform our audience about the multitude of careers open to them, enabling them to take educated next steps in their professional journeys.
