The Ridgefield Library will host a Women in Technology Career Panel, which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 9 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the library\u2019s main program room at 472 Main Street. Confirmed panelists include Sharon Peters, GVP of Marketing at Charter Communications; Dawn DeCosta, founder and owner of Tech Savvy; and Suchitra Joshi, Director for Smarter Computing Solutions in IBM\u2019s Systems and Technology Group. One of Joshi\u2019s \u201ccolleagues\u201d at IBM is Watson, and she hopes to have the supercomputer on hand to answer a few questions. Participants will talk about the role technology plays in their jobs, how they got into their current field and position, and what advice they would give to young women considering a tech-based career. \u00a0They will also give their perspectives on how to survive in a male-dominated field where marginalization and even harassment of women remains commonplace. Ridgefield High School senior Omika Suryawanshi, a veteran of the Library\u2019 Girls Who Code club, has organized this event and will serve as moderator. \u00a0Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and to talk with them following the presentation. Young women in middle and high school are encouraged to attend, along with parents, educators and women working in technology. Boys and young men are also welcome!
