Women in tech face many barriers along their career paths, from unconscious bias in the workplace to feeling isolated in their field. But, as a recent article from The Muse reveals, there are plenty of ways to overcome these obstacles. Sheila Oh, leader of the Seattle.AnitaB.org local, was one of five women who spoke with The Muse on tips to having a successful career in tech. She explained that joining online groups — like Systers and other AnitaB.org communities — is a great way to find support and resources.
“Understanding that I wasn’t alone was so powerful for me,” Sheila explained. “Having a community, even just someone else to talk to who’s in a similar experience, helps you support one another.”
