Don’t miss the annual UC Women in Technology Committee’s featured session, during the final Virtual UC Tech, on Tuesday, January 26, at 3:30 pm.
Jenn Stringer, Associate Vice Chancellor for IT and Chief Information Officer at UC Berkeley, will host a talk, With a Little Help From My Friends: The Importance of Mentorship and Sponsorship, about the value – particularly for women – of having both mentors and sponsors throughout one’s career. She will discuss how a mentor differs from a sponsor, why each are important, how to establish these relationships, and how her own career path was shaped and supported through this crucial network.
