RSVP here to be part of Her 2.0

What is Her 2.0?

This year's theme is Capable. Confident. Courageous. This event aims to inspire and empower women in the tech industry. It's about embracing one's capabilities, building one's courage and confidence in public speaking.

We have been hosting technical study groups ever since we launched last January 2017. But early this year, we saw the importance of soft skills in advancing and improving our members’ careers. Given that realization, this year we will start hosting a series of soft skill topics like How to Negotiate your Salary? How to present yourself? How to start a conversation? and more. For our event this month, we will learn from leading women speakers on how they build their courage to speak in front of an event such as conference, meetups, etc. We also invited hiring managers from different companies to tell us how they promote diversity in their workplace and give insights on what they look for in a candidate.
