Session: Are women better at branding than men?
Being a woman in tech comes with its unique challenges. Not only do women in tech have to overcome a common misconception that they can't code, but they also have to prove that they know how to run their business better than men.
In reality, they actually have so much to be proud of. Like complexe communication skills and the ability to understand their audience emotion. Women are highly socially skilled. They’re good at listening, good at empathy and they build communities across all industries.
