Knewton Hosts NY Tech Women Party

Posted in Knerds on December 14, 2012 by

Last Monday, Knewton hosted the NY Tech Women holiday/birthday party.

Since its inception last December, NY Tech Women has grown to include nearly one thousand women. Through happy hours, mixers, pre-meetups and other informal social events, the group offers a number of ways for women to develop a real sense of community within the NY tech scene.

More than just the standard business networking hour, the group is an easy way for women to form lasting bonds and professional alliances. Their much-lauded and popular mentorship program pairs women throughout the tech community together for one-month-at-a-time mentorships (minimum commitment is 6 hours per month) which have helped many women product managers, data analysts, marketers, and software developers accelerate their careers or make an important transition.

Organized by Jennifer Shaw, Senior Data Analyst at comScore and Jovena Whatmoor, founder of Skillfer, the group includes Tara Chklovski, Founder & CEO of Iridescent Learning (known for its tech entrepreneurship program for high school girls) and our very own Stephanie Killian, a lead software engineer at Knewton.
