ICT and women: biases. How to detect and overcome?
When it comes to women in ICT sector, the numbers show the inequalities. Yet, there are so many who refer to arguments that are irrelevant and show biased thinking.
What are biases? How to detect them? How to overcome biases?
In the workshop we don’t focus only on bias detection, but also on practical solutions on how to overcome them.
Come and think along!
TIME AND PLACE
22nd of September from 11.00 until 13.00 in Tartu (Tartu Loodusmaja, Lille 10, Tartu)
Megan Riley is an accomplished tech leader with an established record of developing high-functioning organizations. Megan joined Microsoft in the late 90s and spent the next nearly 20 years in various Management and Director of Engineering roles, managing groups over multiple countries while based out of Seattle and Paris. It was here she discovered her passion for leading people, creating healthy organizations, and growing talent. Her advocacy work on behalf of the particular challenges faced by women in the technology industry led her to move into Strategy and Coaching, and in 2015 she left the corporate world to start her own company, MLR Strategies.
The workshop becomes a reality thanks to a project focused on increasing the proportion of women in the IT sector. The project is partially financed by the Center for International Private Enterprise.
