CTO: Sensible defaults for tech management

20 February 2023 @ 16:45 - 18:45 UTC+10

Free

ONLINE EVENT. REGISTRANTS WILL RECEIVE LINK

Many engineers promoted to leadership take time to build skills in people management and are given little in the way of guidelines. There is no tech best-practice for how to hire, review performance, grow careers or promote. We do the best with what we have, but this inexperience can quickly lead to reinforcing old biases and low belonging for those in underrepresented groups, halting their career progress.

In this talk, Michelle recounts her journey and challenges of building a successful tech career from the “out-group” and what she has learned about creating a space where everyone can thrive. Take home practical advice to meaningfully kick start your team’s journey toward excellence and inclusion.

We will be running a hybrid event: if you’re in Melbourne, head to Fastmail’s offices to attend in person (must be up to date with your vaccinations to enter), or follow along on Zoom. (Link will be published on meetup on the day)
