April Womenar | The Great Breakup: Why women won’t return to the old workplace

Wednesday, April 12, 2023 (12:00 PM - 1:30 PM) (MDT)


Since 2020 we’ve seen a great number of shifts in workplace behavior. We’ve heard of “The Great Resignation” or the upsetting reality of the “Shecession” post-COVID, but now, we’re faced with “The Great Breakup.”

In many ways the traditional workplace hasn’t adapted much to accommodate women, but the last several years forced us to reevaluate business as usual. This reevaluation, accompanied with a heightened focus on well-being and inclusion, opened the door for greater opportunity and equity. And now that we know that this is possible, we refuse to go back to the way it used to be.

What is “The Great Breakup” and what are women looking for in a workplace? Join us to explore this topic, as well as the ways that many tech companies are working to provide the flexibility, opportunity, professional development and overall employee well-being that their female employees are seeking.

As a later-in-life transition to tech, she’s had the opportunity to work in a variety of positions ranging from the transit algorithm at MapQuest, traveling the US as a consultant for ThoughtWorks, building a Platform Services organization for Handshake, and her current adventure as Director of Engineering for the Customer Group at Teamshares.

Teamshares buys small businesses from retiring owners and transitions them into enduring, employee-owned businesses through software, education, and community products. Passionate about education and equity, Monique has coached many engineers as they break into the lucrative tech industry.
