#leanintogether

One of the main pillars of DISH Women’s Network is: women supporting, impacting and uplifting other women. Similar to the mission of #LEANINTOGETHER, DWN works to offer mentorship opportunities, workplace allies, and overall growth support of fellow women within the DISH culture and technology industry.  Separately, we are powerful – but united, we are unstoppable.

Please take a minute out of your busy Monday to watch this video from the Lean In campaign. It will certainly remind you to take a moment to celebrate the progress of your female co-workers and remember that together, we can go further!

Women in Technology Conference

DISH Women’s Network leadership had the amazing opportunity to attend the Women in Technology Conference last Friday in Denver. As a blossoming organization, we were very eager and honored to be a part of this progressive conversation, and continue to support the DWN mission of inspiring women within the technical industry. This group of incredibly talented women are committed to the training and recruitment of female talent, and working to motivate future generations to become passionate about the tech sphere.

Below are some of our favorite learnings from the conference:
