Empathy Engineer

Madalyn is a web developer fueled by live music (and coffee) and at the constant beck and call of her pet rabbits and cat. She works for Olark in Ann Arbor. She is looking forward to talking about her experience as a female engineer who openly shared details of her personal struggle with depression and anxiety with the company she works for. She will reflect on what Olark did to make her feel comfortable taking the leap of faith, what you can look for (and push for) at your workplace, and offer an example of success for those who struggle with mental obstacles.
