March is Women’s History Month and the YWCA of the City of New York, the first organization for women and girls in the city, will hold its third annual signature breakfast panel series.
The 2015 theme for the series is “Leadership and Generosity: A Call to Action.” The first panel in the series will focus on Women in Tech and will take place March 3 at BNY Mellon, (80 Broadway, 47th Floor, in Lower Manhattan) from 8:30-10:00 a.m.
Here are the top three reasons why you won’t want to miss this discussion:

1. Get up close and personal with amazing women in tech

Who could be more perfect than Kelly Hoey, speaker and strategist extraordinaire, to moderate a panel on women in tech? Kelly was listed in Forbes as one of five women changing the world of venture capital and is widely recognized for her leadership in supporting and investing in women. Add to that, three panelists who are all amazing in their own right. Shelley Goldman of AT&T, Cassidy Williams of Venmo (who was recently profiled by Technical.ly Brooklyn) and Yunfei Xu of Bloomberg will all be on hand to discuss leadership generosity for women in tech.

2. Get to know the YW better

The YWCA has been working toward eliminating racism and empowering women and girls for over 150 years. Has it been a while since you’ve checked out what the YW is up to? Did you know the YW has a Geek Girls Club? (For which Kelly Hoey is the Chief Technology Ambassador.) What about the AMP Leadership program? Approach any of the YW staff before or after the panel and learn more.

3. It’s free

Not only is the panel free to attend but co-host, BNY Mellon, provides a nice breakfast spread so you won’t be hungry while tweeting all of the jewels of wisdom that are sure to be given during the panel discussion. Follow the discussion on Twitter with hashtag #YWwomanKIND.
