    • After skipping our October session because of the Summit, ManagerHacking is back for November. With 5 sessions under our belt, this seems like a good time to take stock of the program. To that end, we are interested in hearing what YOU want/need from a program like this. As such, the Nov session will be a planning/brainstorming session led by Dia on future topics and session structure (discussions, presentations, etc). This is your chance to influence the direction of this program!
