Diverse Roles in Tech – a Tech Women Lagos Panel Discussion

How do you build a fulfilling career in tech without writing a single line of code?

About this Event

Technology companies need people with a broad range of skillsets to succeed. While software development is a critical function within tech startups, roles such as product management, sales, design, finance, and marketing are just as important.

In this panel discussion, 4 women who’ve built impressive careers in tech share details about their journey, and the diverse roles that exist within technology.

Here’re some of the questions we’ll be exploring:

  • How do you make the transition into the tech industry from traditional industries?
  • What’re some of the critical responsibilities in technology companies that don’t require being a software developer?
  • What should you look out for when joining a tech company?
  • And much more!

Important: please note that this is strictly a women-only event.
