Professional Development for Women in Technical Roles
Many organizations include opportunities for professional development as a benefit to their employees. After all, employers need to have workers who are well-trained in the current trends of their profession. In technical roles, women who take career breaks to balance personal and professional commitments often fall behind due to the fast-paced nature of their industries. As such, it is important for organizations to consider the diverse needs of their employee base when creating and supporting professional development opportunities.
