It started when I took on the role of manager when my manager was on maternity leave. During this time I got pregnant. My manager chose not to return to the firm after her maternity leave and they were looking to recruit.
My entire experience in the tech industry is as a new parent, and it’s quite different from my first career in nonprofits. While the third sector is mostly women, the tech industry is dominated by young men.Being a parent in tech is interesting because not many of my peers are women or even parents. Most of my coworkers are young men who aren’t parents and don’t know any parents.
