Session: Past, Present and Future of Women in Organizations: Factors That Promote and Challenge Gender Equality in IT
As a Tech C-level, the question I always faced was: how did you get there? Why do so many of us women drop out along the tech career path? Why so few women in this segment? This talk is about gender equality in Technology. It´s a result of my master's study, research carried out with women and men and which seeks to determine the factors that drive and hinder the career of women in technology, in the different stages of their journey: beginning, intermediate (between 5 and 10 years) and in the ascension to leadership. An amazing conversation for girls, women and executives, which explores biases, challenges and adds my 25+ of experience as a Tech Executive, in a practical, pragmatical and fun way.
