What we’re about
Ministry of Testing Valencia is our local Valencian chapter.
We are a bunch of enthusiast software testers, the kind that say n'hi haura que provar-ho before a release and Redeu! when something does not work as expected.
Our meetups exist to bring people together to talk and learn about good and authentic testing.
You can find out more about what we do at www.ministryoftesting.com

- 10 steps towards more feminist leadershipC/ d'Espinosa, 8, puerta 310, València
We have Vera Baum back in Valencia! Maybe it is the mediterranean breeze, who knows.
But given she will be spending some days in town, we asked her if she could deliver a talk for the local community.
The talk is about 10 steps towards more feminist leadership:
Being a feminist leader means believing everyone deserves equal and equitable treatment and opportunity regardless of gender, sexuality, sex, race, religion, or disability.
It does not require taking a leading role within your company - there are many situations where you can lead without the authority of a certain role. Unfortunately, there are not many guidelines on how to act as a feminist leader. This talk is for everyone who likes to get a new perspective on leadership.
Change often results in uncertainties that can be met in a variety of ways. Regardless of which way you choose, it does not only impact the way we are working together but also how we lead.
Agile leadership already includes feedback loops, experiments, and institutional checkpoints for communication. Feminist leadership additionally puts a strong emphasis on making sure everyone gets heard and different perspectives are getting taken into account.
Therefore, this approach is especially relevant for people in Testing. Not only are testers often the only person from a marginalized group in a team but also the way their profession looks at the product varies from those of developers.
Based on my personal journey toward becoming a feminist leader, I will share 10 steps to help others on their way to feminist leadership.
