Book Club 

How the Book Club works

Every 2 months the Book Club members receive an email with 3 books to choose from for their next meeting. After a week, results with the final selection are sent to everyone, so that all members have time to order and read (at least some of!) the book. At the end of the following month members meet up and discuss. Sometimes the authors join in. Sign up for the newsletter because we also attach discount codes from publishers. Check the Global Events Calendar, your email and the pinned messages at Slack for the date of the next meeting. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Adventures of women in tech

By Alana Karen

Can women have meaningful careers in tech? Should women avoid working for technology companies?

Alana Karen was annoyed every time she saw the latest headline questioning women’s survival in tech. She pictured a new graduate deciding on her career and only having one-sided articles to help make her decision. She saw colleagues roll their eyes at books about C-level women in tech and heard jokes about how inaccessible those stories sounded. She wondered how women could feel like they belonged if they didn’t see themselves reflected in the media.

Inspired by women she knows in tech—women with diverse backgrounds, education, and ambitions—she wrote The Adventures of Women in Tech to fill that gap. A twenty-year tech company veteran and leader, Alana Karen brilliantly and systematically replaces what we think we know about women in tech with more than eighty women’s stories of what it’s honestly like to join, lead, and thrive in today’s top technology companies.

The Adventures of Women in Tech delves into why we join tech, the challenges we face, and the skills and support we need to succeed and stay in an often challenging environment. In twelve chapters filled with intimate stories, insights, and advice from women working in technology companies and start-ups, Alana Karen demonstrates that we all belong in tech.
