Diversity and Inclusion – Women in Testing

Th12     Start Time : 14:15     End Time : 16:00

Talk Abstract:

Diversity and inclusion in IT helps us provide better software to our customers.

One part of that is the role of women in tech. In the last two years we’ve had lively discussions at EuroSTAR during the coffee and lunch breaks, this year we are part of the programme!

On Thursday afternoon, come and join us for an awesome workshop where we will continue our good discussions from last year. We have an invited speaker to share her thoughts on gender, diversity and inclusion, and there will be a chance to discuss, based on input from you. We want your feedback, and ideas, so please visit our blog and give us some topics, fun facts etc that we can include.  This is an excellent chance for everyone – not just women! – to get together with other passionate people and discuss, listen to interesting talks and collaborate. Bring your good energy and let us reflect on how we can make a difference when it comes to diversity in tech.

See the feedback from last year and please let us know if there are particular areas you’d like covered in this years session. You can email your ideas to [email protected].
