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).
We meet on a monthly basis to discuss topics selected by the group and share our respective experiences as Agilistas. We welcome suggestions about meetup locations, speakers, discussion topics and events.
How well do you know your work colleagues? Their hobbies, ambitions or personal background? Forming closer connections with your team members, leads to improved team collaboration. Knowing more about each other will help you trust and form a stronger team.
Want a creative and engaging technique to get to know your colleagues better?
Join us for the Personal Maps - a virtual workshop presented by Sandra Wong.
Participants will have a chance to create and share their personal map using Miro and will walk away with the knowledge of how to use this Personal Map activity and the template to implement within their teams and organizations.
A personal map is a mental map of a person. It’s a Management 3.0 technique and is designed to make it easier for you and your team to get to know your colleagues better. Management 3.0 is a mindset, combined with an ever-changing collection of games, tools, and practices to help any worker to manage the organization.
