Come to the PDC09 Women in Technology Luncheon to meet and share stories with the powerful, insightful, and intelligent women attending PDC09. Take part in speed mentoring - an opportunity to gain insight from colleagues' experiences in the workplace through a confidential circle of peers - based on 'mentoring circles' design, but turbo charged for PDC. We hope you will join host Shoshanna Budzianowski, Partner Group Program Manager at Microsoft, for lunch while learning from each other's wisdom and successes!
Wednesday, November 18 - Location TBA
