Here at Exponent Partners, we do our very best to operate in alignment with our values of impact, diversity, learning, and innovation. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical aspects of our identity as an organization and are fundamental to how we seek to ‘show up’ as a company. The past couple of years have allowed us to dig deep, reflect, and carefully consider how to live our values of prioritizing diversity, ensuring equity, and promoting inclusion. That is why we are so thrilled to take part in the most empowering conference of the year: Dreamin’ In Color 2024. From June 19th to 21st, the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana, will be the epicenter of inspiration, knowledge sharing, and connection for current and aspiring Black professionals in the Salesforce ecosystem. We’re excited to announce our sponsorship and participation in Dreamin’ In Color 2024, where innovation intersects with diversity within the Salesforce ecosystem.

Ava’s Session: Navigating a Tech Transition

Ava Turner, alongside Cynthia Coleman from Huron, will be co-presenting a session titled Navigating a Tech Transition: Unveiling Realities and Crafting Success. This session addresses the challenges faced by early-career professionals transitioning into tech roles and provides actionable steps for success. Join Ava and Cynthia on June 21st at 12pm as they explore the realities of tech transition and offer strategies to persevere and thrive in the tech ecosystem.

Here’s a sneak peek into Ava’s session with her top 3 tips for navigating tech transitions: 

  • Find ways to make an impact by leaning into your superpowers while developing other relevant skills and gaining experience.
  • Be a good colleague – communicating roadblocks, being respectful of team members time don’t require technical expertise but can go a long way to create a positive work environment.
  • Push pass discomfort and ask questions even when you think it’s about something you should already know.
