Cyborg Dance Party
Saturday, March 6, 2021, 12pm EST/EDT

It’s an exciting time to bring technology into your career, no matter what your major, and at IU you can gain skills that will set you apart in your field. For a lot of new and soon-to-be graduates, however, it can be hard to know where to start. Join IU Alumna and IBMer Meghan McGrath on Saturday to talk about practical tips for finding your place in tech and why working in technology is like a cyborg dance party.
