Time to S.O.A.R.

In this special episode, Joy sits down with each of the speakers from the inaugural S.O.A.R. Conference, presented by Bluebird Leaders in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The event was created to support advancing women in health IT, which is a theme near and dear to our HIT Like a Girl pod hearts.

A variety of topics were covered, ranging from the importance of personal branding, self-advocacy, measuring DEI, reframing failure into opportunity, making friends with the problem you’re trying to solve, and much more. We learned from industry experts and a very special tech-savvy teen. Enjoy!
