Real talk: women sometimes need to take a temporary break from work to for a bevy of time-consuming considerations. There’s no shame in that game. If you’re amongst that group, and ready to jump back in after a prolonged absence, PowerToFly and United Technologies are here to help you on your chosen journey with our Re-Empower webinar. Returning to work after a being out of the loop for a couple of years can seem daunting. To help with this transition, UTC’s Re-Empower Program is designed specifically to help female engineers catch up on what’s been missed in a relaxed setting. Collectively, we see your potential and want to help you to continue your professional journey.
