    According to Priya Serai, PMP, we can help increase this percentage by educating children against bias, inspiring girls to take STEM courses, and inspiring everyone breaking glass ceilings at work.

    In this session we will discuss Women in Technology in more details, from the disparities reported across the nation to what we can do locally to address it, including the new Women in Technology group she is forming. Here is the mission and an excerpt from the charter:

    Mission: Inspiring women to Discover their purpose, Invest in themselves, and Achieve their personal and professional goals.

    Charter (excerpt): WIT will create a self-sustaining group of professionals who grow with the program and become mentors in their own right for future generations. It will do so by providing a regular forum to:

    • Foster mentorship opportunities to professional women
    • Share stories of women who have achieved personal and professional goals while maintaining work-life balance
    • Foster women’s partnership with men in their goal realization


    Attend and learn how everyone can get involved.

    Priya Serai, PMP, is Director of Enterprise Applications and Program Management at Belcan. Prior to joining Belcan, Priya was Director of eCommerce at Cengage Learning; Portfolio Manager, then Director of Business Operations, at Standard Register; Program Manager at Maxim Healthcare Services; Project Lead at Warner Brothers; Project Lead/Business Analyst at GE; and Software Engineer, also at GE.
