About the event
It’s no secret women are highly underrepresented in the tech industry. Some argue that this is a “natural” given fact, but it hasn't always been this way;
Since the 60s, there's been an increasing number of women who went out to college; an increase that was more or less the same in all fields. But something happened in the 80's that made their percentage drop, solely in the computer science field. What happened?
In this talk, I’ll explain the factors that account for these numbers and demonstrate how gender stereotypes affect and shape the tech world even when they’re totally unconscious.
I’ll show you there isn’t anything “natural” about it, and that you CAN make a difference just by doing some things differently. Finally, I will give practical and scientifically-backed techniques in order to attract more women into tech.
