The first annual Fleurix Conference was held on March 29th and 30th at the Camp North End in Charlotte, NC. CATC is proud to have participated in Charlotte’s first conference celebrating women in tech as both presenter and participant(s).
CATC presented a panel discussion titled, Making the Transition from Technical Expert to People Leader; an honest conversation about moving into a management role. The discussion covered a wide range of experiences, crossing industries and disciplines, and highlighted common themes about needed skills and the need to stay technically savvy. Of critical importance, the conversation covered several “I wish I’d known” aspects. An incredibly engaged audience eagerly supported an open and fluid exchange.
Moderated by Meredith LaBonte, the panel included Chasity Parker, Cynthia Freund, Lauren Pihl, and Vishwanthini Cook.
