Janice Levenhagen-Seeley (@ChickTechOrg on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her non-profit ChickTech. What is ChickTech? It is a nonprofit dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers. Craig and Janice discuss how their programs not only develop the skills women need in tech but also a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence. They also discuss the realities of the “Good Ol’ Boys” network, unconscious bias in the workplace and how you can find a local chapter or create one of your own. They also talk about using culture training and assessments to identify issues many organization may not even realize exist.
