What we're about

The Empowering South Florida Women In Agile is a community of Sunshine Agilistas and allies who support Women In Agile. We are focused on helping each other grow and thrive personally and professionally through mentorship, learning through sharing personal stories and experiences, and building strong relationships through member facilitated sessions and fun activities.

Our organizations are transforming.

• We MUST show up

• We MUST speak up about what is important to us

• We MUST confidently take a seat at the table

• We MUST be willing to take risks and learn

• We MUST lift each other up

As Agilistas, we have an opportunity as catalysts of this change...This is OUR MOMENT!

If you are a female agile practitioner (an Agile Leader, Coach, Scrum Master, Agile Project Manager, Agile Business analyst, Software Developer, Tester, Product Owner, Product Manager, Agile Trainer or any form of agile enthusiast and just interested in learning more about Agile, and empowering you fellow agilistas, you are welcome.

If you are among the many men who support and provide allyship and empower Women in Agile, you are welcome. Our organization values diversity of opinion and welcomes all perspectives as we evolve in Agile together.

This group is agile methodology agnostic and welcomes Agilists from all disciplines.

Empowering South Florida Women in Agile is part of a larger grass roots effort to get more women involved in the Agile community through blogging, speaking at events, building a network with other women, and creating a mentorship program for women (www.womeninagile.com).

Getting to Know a Fellow Agilista

Online event

Take this opportunity to get to know each other on a personal level through one on one conversations and a few insightful questions, as you practice empathy, curiosity, storytelling and holding space for another person.

Format of the session:
To give ample space and time to get to know each other, you will be paired with one other person and offered a list of questions as conversation starters. At the end, we will come back to the main room and share our experiences.

The questions are only a guideline. Feel free to ask your own questions and spend as much time as you and your fellow agilista want on each of the questions.

You can find a list of suggested questions here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AjRGLlGVo6AJI_Cg-YuvK73f_M_KhNcztrtGZ-wPEOc/edit?usp=sharing

For this format to be effective, please plan to attend for the full duration.

Enjoy this process of getting to know each other on a deeper personal level while sharing your stories!

Thanks to our Agilista, Tatyana Chinenova, for initiating this event!
