SESSION Details

Unleashing your personal superpower

Building a successful career in tech is hard. Every day is a battle, and sometimes the barriers placed in your way seem insurmountable. Wouldn't it all be easier if you had a superpower?

Maybe you do.

Greta Thunberg famously described her Asperger’s syndrome diagnosis as being a superpower: "I’m sometimes a bit different from the norm. And - given the right circumstances- being different is a superpower." We can all learn something from Greta.

In this informal session, Microsoft program manager Matthew Roche will share his personal story - including the hard, painful parts he doesn't usually talk about. Matthew will share his struggles with mental health, how he found his own superpower, how he tries to use it to make the world a better place... and how you might be able to do the same.

Please join the session, and join the conversation, because talking about mental health is important, and because the first step to finding your superpower is knowing where to look.
