"What Should I Be Doing Right Now?" - Cynthia Maxwell, Slack, Director of iOS Engineering

"As a manager, time is one of your most precious resources, and it can be a challenge to allocate it effectively and efficiently. In my presentation, I will be focusing on simple tools to help you focus and plan your day. We will start by breaking down the major job functions of a manager and then explore detailed examples of strategies to resolve competing priorities. I will also share resources that work for me personally as a manager. By the end of our discussion, I hope that you will have the tools to be able to quickly judge where your attention is most needed at any given time."

Cynthia is a Director of iOS Engineering at Slack and has led flagship mobile engineering projects for other companies such as Apple and Pinterest. She has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley and a MS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford. She is a Code2040 mentor and advisor to women in technology.
