At Smartcar, we’ve always been heavily involved with different local organizations and universities such as the coding bootcamps Hack Reactor and Hackbright Academy, San Jose State University, Santa Clara University, Stanford University, and UC Berkeley. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we want to take work-from-home as an opportunity to collaborate with groups outside of the San Francisco Bay Area. To kick things off, we are excited to announce our partnership with Products by Women.

Products by Women is a diverse global community network for women in innovation, tech and beyond. The New York-based network offers women the opportunity to connect and learn from peers from around the world, find jobs beyond borders, and get matched with recruiters and mentors to accelerate their careers.

Smartcar and Products by Women will collaborate by hosting several webinars together during the coming months. Topics will include product design work at a startup, post-college career transitions, job hunting hacks, and more.

Come join us for our first event on September 3 at 4 p.m. PST, where Smartcar’s Kathleen Hsu will tell participants what it’s like to be the first and only product designer at a 19-person startup.

Stay tuned for further Products by Women events and more Smartcar collaborations to come!
