Attract, retain and grow technical women (45 mins)
This talk has been given at DDD Conference, Adelaide.
Women get asked all the time, how do I get more women into my team and company - Sammy is here to answer that. There are a lot of factors that play into it from pipeline to company perception. And once women are onboard, there’s work to be done in retention and most importantly growth.
Sammy's worked with companies all over Australia on how to be more inclusive for women. She's seen a lot of stuff go down. But also seen a lot of incredible wins. There is gap in how we support our technical women. And she's keen to share how we as a community can progress and empower technical women.
