Women in Semiconductors @ ASMC 2017

Women in Semiconductors at ASMC 2017 has concluded.

Attendees at our inaugural event ranked this dialog as one of the most relevant topics to the future of their business and the industry as a whole.  This year’s Women in Semiconductors at ASMC will address ‘The Power of Talk: Getting a Seat at the Table’. The program will focus on effective communication skills in a male-dominated industry, who gets heard and why. The interactive discussion will include:

  • Dynamics of gender styles
  • Managing biases
  • Negotiating to win  
The Women in Semiconductors at ASMC continues the conversation started in 2016. Join is on May 15, 2017 at the Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga, NY

  You want to contribute. You want to advance. You want to be heard. The table is set.  Is there a place for you? Don’t let Communication Deficit Disorder – your's and anyone else’s get in the way of your path to success. There IS a seat at the table for you! Say (in all of its forms) what you mean, get what you want!  Regina Darmoni will discuss what gets in the way of being heard and offer up practical tools and solutions that companies and employees can use to address this issue. Sponsors:

4:30pm Interactive Workshop
We all make assumptions based on our past experiences. As a natural consequence, we make biased decisions. In this workshop, we will hear and share stories of gender bias (of both conscious and unconscious origin), then through interactive exercises, we will investigate techniques to interrupt negative behavior. Participants will walk away with a broader perspective and new tools to use when navigating difficult situations. Faciltators from IBM and Applied Materials will guide the discussions.
