Women in technology face numerous challenges in their daily work. If you would like to join others in the field to discuss those challenges, AvramCamp is for you. This one-day joint LITA and PLA preconference will allow female-identifying individuals employed in various technological industries an opportunity to network with others in the field and to collectively examine common barriers faced.
This day will follow the unconference model allowing attendees the power to choose topics most relevant to them. The day will start with Erin Berman and Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz helping attendees combat imposter syndrome, the feeling that you aren’t actually qualified for the work you are doing and will be discovered as a fraud. Attendees will then have the opportunity to propose and attend breakout sessions on a variety of topics such as salary negotiation, creating inclusive job postings, and becoming leaders in the technology field. We are also honored to have ALA President-Elect Loida Garcia- Febo come address the Camp attendees!
