Ubuntu Women Career Days: Jane Silber: From Developer to CEO, a Career in Tech

On Saturday November 12th at 16:00 UTC the Ubuntu Women Project is hosting their second session in their Career Days initiative with a session titled “From Developer to CEO, a Career in Tech” featuring Canonical CEO Jane Silber.

Career Days is the brain child of Cheri Francis who was inspired by her own experiences in tech and studies which continue to show that women lack female role models and exposure to tech career opportunities.

So join us on Saturday, November 12th at 16:00 UTC in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions).

We will not be accepting questions specifically about Ubuntu, Canonical or other companies she has worked for, this session is strictly about her path and experiences in the tech industry.

These sessions are open to the whole community, you don’t need to be a woman to attend or participate.
