Spring is here! As the snow slowly melts away, get inside for some awesome events. Here are three not to miss this week:
Join us on March 31st at Tech in Motion Boston’s “Women in Tech” panel discussion. During this event, we will be profiling some amazing women currently making their mark on the local tech community. These trailblazing women in tech will share their stories and experiences from different fields within the industry. Afterwards, we’ll open up the floor for a Q&A session. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with others interested in this topic!
Meet us at the Microsoft NERD Center for cocktails, light snacks provided by KIND, the perfect opportunity to network, and the chance to win an exciting prize from Lumosity! This is one Tech in Motion event you wont want to miss.
