Windward Participates in Women In Tech Conference

Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

Windward, the expert in reporting, document generation and business intelligence software, has returned from a successful appearance at the third annual Colorado Technology Association's Women in Tech Conference. The Women in Tech Conference, which took place this year June 7, 2013, in Littleton, Colo., is a full-day professional growth conference for women working in a variety of technical careers.

Windward sponsored a round table discussion that facilitated the exchange of ideas around a variety of topics such as setting goals, increasing productivity at work, and blending a career with a personal life. Meanwhile, CEO Shirley Clawson headed a nearby table where she led conversations and speed mentoring sessions.

In addition, among the roughly 400 attendees were VP of Marketing Lisa Harris, Sales Executive Audrey McGlothlin, Marketing Manager Annette Grotz, programming interns Sarah Scheffler and Wendy Brooks, and two friends of the Windward community: Stephanie Wanek of the NCWIT Entrepreneurial Alliance and Karen Frame of Makeena, Inc.

"Certainly the most important message that I took out of the conference is that there is a wonderful network of women out there supporting each other in the tech industry," said Scheffler. "Ive been fortunate thus far in my life to work and go to school at places where my gender isnt important in the eyes of my coworkers. However, thats definitely not true everywhere, or even most places. There are sadly few women in technical fields and its wonderful that we have this network to call on for support and mentoring."

Participation in the Women in Tech Conference is part of the Windward STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Programming) program, one of Windward's community outreach enterprises. Windward's summer internship program provides opportunities for college students to expand their knowledge through events such as this.

"What struck me the most were the speakers talking about relationships in the workplace, but the information was really applicable in a much broader sense," said Brooks. "The way you interact with people is really important, and the speakers called us out on the fact that we were only thinking and not always doing. I found that very motivational, and have since began to not only consider how I think about and interact with others, but to make changes and act on them."
