"Female students are advised against studying computer science", unfortunately headlines like these are still on the agenda in 2018. But we do exist: women in technical jobs and tech industries. Too many times, as a woman in IT, you find yourself alone in a room full of men, events and panel discussions in the IT industry are often exclusively staffed by men, and women are still afraid of pursuing a career in IT due to a lack of women they can exchange with. Thus companies and our society are missing out on 50% of our potential. This needs to change!
With #TheNewITGirls we give women of different backgrounds, companies and occupational fields, ... the opportunity not only to network in regular Meetups, but also a stage to present themselves. In 15-30 minute introductory talks, each community member can talk about themselves, their work, valuable tools or experiences. As a result, they can learn to present themselves in a protected environment, and then perform more confidently in their daily work to succeed.
Talk on one of our next events about your profession, experience and support other women and girls.
