This month we amplified the voices of women from our tech community for our ‘International Women’s Day 2021: Choose to Challenge’ webinar in collaboration with Coding Black Females. We raised an amazing £440 via ticket sales for our charitable partner Smart Works Charity.
The forward-thinking and uplifting discussion led by leaders from around the globe touched on gender-specific challenges, stereotypes and barriers they have faced throughout their careers. Our panel also spoke about how the pandemic impacted their work-life balance and childcare, and experiences of gaslighting and how to distinguish the signs.
Our experts then discussed progress on gender equality, critical changes that have shaped technology and empowering moments that have inspired them in their career. At Women in DevOps, we understand that even though the tech world is progressive, there is still work to be done to improve gender equality as we continue to choose to challenge and close the DevOps gender gap.
We would like to thank our fabulous panel for their insights and inspiring conversation. Thank you, also, to our audience who joined us and continued the conversation via the networking session.
