Come hear Heather Cabot as she shares how fearless female founders, technologists, and innovators are fighting at a grassroots level for an ownership stake in the revolution that's changing the way we live, work, and connect.

Heather will be joined by other senior leaders (including Natasha Green, Community Leader at the Anita Borg Institute, Yau Cheng, Director, BNY Mellon's Head of Americas – Diversity & Inclusion, Global Citizenship and Sustainability, and Karyn Cunnane, Director of Business Products at Verizon) as they explore relevant themes and how you can join the revolution.  

You'll come away energized and ready to rock; and able to leverage the strength of the other powerful women you'll meet that night.

BNY Mellon's Women's Initiatives Network (WIN) and Women in Technology (WIT) are pleased to partner with the Northern NJ Ellevate Chapter and the Ellevate Pittsburgh Chapter to offer this event.

A copy of Geek Girl Rising:  Inside the Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech will be given to each participant.
