Why should women be interested in technology and digital industry? Software business is still strongly dominated by men. Recently many communities have been set up by active technology women who aim to change this and open the eyes for other women about the wide variety of opportunities, the social nature of modern engineering work and the fact that everyone should understand at least the basic principles about how Facebook (or any other software) works.
Futurice employs today 24 women (that is 15% of our employees) and we look for more, but it’s not easy. We want to dedicate this Afterwork-event for women and contribute for making the change happen. We will hear four or five interesting 15min presentations from very different point-of-views but all given by women who love digital. Men are strongly recommended to participate and share the learnings!
Please sign up by November 5th at our Facebook event or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line βAfterworkβ.
Drinks and snacks will be included.
