How to Navigate Your Career: A Conversation with Women in Tech at PDT Partners

Starting a career within tech and curious about how to jump start your career?

Join our all-women panel where we’ll debunk common misconceptions and share experiences to help grow your career in tech. We’ll get specific on how to highlight your strengths, raise your visibility, and strategically start your career from negotiating your first offer to finding mentorship.
