A staggering 50% of women leave their tech jobs before the age of 35, a rate 45% higher than their male counterparts, citing wage gaps, professional stagnation, and a lack of work-life balance as common reasons. And that's typically where the story stops: tech has a big DE&I issue.

But forget about tech—more importantly, what are all these smart-ass women doing with their careers after they quit?

Katrina Walker, part of the 10% who transitioned from tech to entrepreneurship, shares her journey from the 15% of women in data science to the 2% with venture capital access. Challenging the conventional call for more women in tech, Katrina advocates for more women in entrepreneurship, underscoring their invaluable skills within the startup community. Join Katrina for a discussion on navigating post-tech careers and the unique contributions women make to startup endeavors.
