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 didnโ€™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?

    What?! Safe environment? You think men in Tech are not safe to be with?

      By safe I meant by people at a similar stage in their career. I donโ€™t mind if there are men but not looking to be in a class with devs just out of college. May be I am worrying too much?

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

      Fine. We got the message. Men in tech are not safe. Have a nice day OP.

  • 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.
