Many technology workers are capital 'I's, or "Introverts". The simplest definition of an introvert is a person who prefers time alone and finds solitude is essential to recharge. When in social situations, introverts tend to prefer smaller, quieter groups as opposed to large, loud environments. Introverts may also be shy, but shyness and introversion are two different things.

How, as an introvert, can you work your way up in your career if you prefer to work alone? How can you manage the demands of interaction with others in leadership positions?

In this session, Dawn will share her experiences being both shy as well as an "I". She will provide tips for success as an introvert as well as how to overcome shyness.
