The tech world is a fast-paced and impressive world, constantly in the need for high-skilled employees with very different skills and competences. It seems like a world with infinite opportunities for many people.
However, it is not a secret that the technology industry still
suffers from diversity issues. Why is that? And what possibilities are there to make your career in the tech-world apart from being a software engineer. Which opportunities and challenges does the IT industry
pose for women?
We would like to discuss these topics with our colleagues who are working in the IT-industry for many years in different working areas.
We want to point out that, while the event aims to be a safe space for guests of marginalized genders, we strongly encourage men to spend the evening with us and to join our talks.
More information about the agenda and our attending colleagues will follow soon.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT SCOUT24 ON THE FIFTH FLOOR OF BOTHESTR. 11.
