The Chief Technology Officer of D.C. is meeting for breakfast at General Assembly next week.

Archana Vemulapalli will be the featured speaker at the next Women in Tech Breakfast, which is set for July 18.

Vemulapalli was formally nominated by Mayor Muriel Bowser for the District’s top tech role in January, 2016, having previously worked as CTO at Pristine Environments. She quickly emerged as a civic tech leader. We’ve recently seen the Office of the Chief Technology Officer have a role in local #opendata efforts, as well as a call to form a Council of Global City CIOs.

The breakfast series invites women in tech to “give their insight on how they reached their level of success, advise on navigating the workplace, and how we can help the next generation of women in tech,” according to the event description. The talk by Vemulapalli will be followed by a breakout session.
