We’re excited to announce that through our deep research into the experiences that help women in tech thrive, we have developed proven interventions that you can now use. Each intervention targets a different aspect of the daily work experience to help you retain and ensure the success of women in technology. Tell us how they work!
These fabulous Character Posters will help you get started. We have six Honorable characters and six Jerk characters. You can get them individually or as a combined poster. Use the posters to guide conversations about how you want to interact as a team! Find the behaviors you need to work on in yourself. Let’s be more encouraging!
