More than Underwater Basket Weaving: How the Liberal Arts Prepares Us for a Career in Tech

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Objective: Guidance
Audience Level: Student/Early Career
Session Type: Student Opportunity Lab

In a world where women are acutely underrepresented in STEM, the “liberal arts” is hardly a focus of any discourse around education. Through personal anecdotes and research, this speaker makes the case that diverse, seemingly unrelated coursework can teach you how to learn rapidly, think creatively and solve problems empathically--skills that will help you survive, even thrive in a career in tech.
