After work training for managers

I have long stopped learning or doing anything really technical at work as technical manager. I lead a large team of engineers and PMs. I am a mom of three and finding it very hard to become technical again. At work I only have time just to be a manager. Are there workshops or training that I could take to help me become hands on again. Thinking of a night a week on different topics. Mostly in areas like deep learning which I didn’t do in my undergrad. As I am pretty senior, would love a safe environment to learn, preferably with women only. I have been at Microsoft for 20 years and want to gain new skills, not just be a manager. Advice?

      She is taking whatever advantages current sexists trends provide to women. Cant blame her at all.

    Lol what does a safe environment mean? You're scared of being around people that know more than you? Take your sexism somewhere else.

    I would recommend meetups in the area. There are quite a few on a vast array of topics.

    Maybe take an online class to start.
