Given the rate at which things change in the field of computing, it is expected that professionals will change careers at least once or possibly more. The change can be to different companies, institutions, or government agencies or between the different entities. The change often requires major time for adjustment to new environments and new responsibilities. This is especially the case underrepresented women in computing, where the numbers are very small. This panel, organized by the Underrepresented Women in Computing Committee (UWiC) will discuss effective strategies for management the adjustments and insights as to when transitions may be advantageous to one’s career.
