Join the #healthITchicks community for our annual meetup at HIMSS on Tuesday, March 6 from 2-2:45pm at the HIMSS Spot, Level 2, Lobby C. (And be sure to stay afterwards for our annual photo-op.)
Making the Ladder Lateral:
Advice from #HealthITChicks on Creating the Career Path That Works Best for You
Success for women working in health IT is no longer defined by the rungs of a corporate ladder. Today’s female professionals want to establish careers on their terms, whether that means aiming for the C-suite, finding opportunities that match up with their values, or creating something entirely new that fits their work/life balance needs. Join the #healthITchicks community for an audience-driven Q&A on how to create a career path that works best for your passions, experience, and goals.
This year’s meetup will feature an all-star panel of women from different parts of the health IT industry who have taken their careers by the hand, opting for professional paths influenced by their passions and personal and professional goals rather than the vertical rungs of the traditional corporate ladder.
