Women in Tech Peer-2-Peer #14

WomenInTech Peer2PeerNov 12, 2015  |  7 pm  |  The Halton Hive, 901 Guelph Line, Burlington

Topic: Podcasting 101

Join us as we welcome home long time Silicon Halton member and podcasting guru Donna Papacosta who will be sharing her expertise in this unique and authoritative medium. 

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.
