We constantly hear people in the tech industry saying “We want to recruit more women but we just don’t get any women applicants!” Well, chances are you’re probably doing it wrong. There isn’t anything “natural” about it. You CAN make a difference just by being doing some things differently. In this talk, I will give practical and scientifically-backed techniques to adjust every step of your recruitment funnel that can substantially increase the number of women in your company. The talk will be based upon my viral blog post https://hackernoon.com/how-to-attract-more-women-and-not-the-way-you-think-372203f5a7d7

How To Be an Inclusive Leader

Soft Skills, Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion

Asset 12SLIDES.png
Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

Companies today are starting to understand that diversity is crucial for building a strong culture. Diversity enhances creativity and induces better decision-making and problem-solving, which ultimately leads to better products. But simply throwing a mix of diverse people together doesn’t guarantee high performance; it requires inclusive leadership; leadership that assures that all team members feel they are treated respectfully and fairly, are valued and sense that they belong and fit in the organization, and because of this can contribute their share. Problem is, sometimes noticing these elusive dynamics is harder than you think. In this talk, I will give practical advice on how to reveal unconscious biases that we all experience and how to address them in order to become more inclusive leaders.

7±2 Reasons Psychology Will Help You Write Better Code

General, Software Engineering

During the Cold War, the CIA knew how to expose Russian spies disguised as American citizens with 100% certainty. They used only a piece of paper and a few questions. How did they do that? Hacking your mind is easier than you think. Let’s explore how these mental hacks affect the code we all read and write. We’ll take a stroll through the world of cognitive psychology, and shed some light on some of our industry’s best and worst practices. We’ll have a few interactive examples of our mind’s limitations, examine how these limitations manifest themselves in real code samples and engineering practices, and take away scientifically backed techniques on how to write better code.

The Story Behind Women on Stage and Power Tips for Overcoming that Stage Fright

Soft Skills, Professional Development, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion, Women in Tech, Inspirational

Asset 11SLIDES.png

I used to have major stage fright and considered myself as an introvert for most of my professional life. Working many years as a software developer in a male-dominated profession, I was afraid to raise my voice, being found out “as a fraud”.
I never imagined that one day I’d be standing on stage speaking about my domains of interest in front of 800 people, and they’d be cheering me on.
I never could have dreamed I’d become an entrepreneur and start my own global platform: Women on Stage, showcasing hundreds of women tech speakers.

Throughout the years, I’ve gathered a bunch of power tips that helped me manage my own stage fright and impostor syndrome on stage.
Join me in this talk and I’d share with you my personal journey, as well as those power tips.

Code Like a Girl - Breaking the Gender Stereotype

Software Engineering, Soft Skills, Professional Development, Women in Tech, Diversity and Inclusion, Inspirational, General

Asset 21talk.png
Asset 11SLIDES.png

It’s no secret that 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; software development was actually once perceived as a rather feminine field. Turns out, something happened in the mid-1980s that dramatically decreased the percentage of women in computer science studies. Why? What happened?

In this talk, I’ll explain what affected these numbers and the factors involved in discouraging women from tech. I’ll demonstrate how gender stereotypes affect and shape the tech world even when they’re totally unconscious.
You will see there isn’t anything “natural” about it and that you CAN make a difference just by doing some things differently. I will show you how.
Finally, I will give practical and scientifically-backed techniques in order to attract more women and girls into tech throughout every step of the career funnel.

Why We Still Need International Women's Day

Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion, Women in Tech, Inspirational

Asset 11SLIDES.png

Women currently hold ~20% of the world’s engineering roles, less than 10% of the senior leadership roles, and are twice as likely to leave the workforce. According to a recent Stack Overflow survey, a senior female software engineer exhibits as much confidence in herself after twice as many years in the field, compared to her male counterpart.
International Women's Day, held on March 8, is a global day dedicated to the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, celebrated for well over a century. This significant day - often extended into a full month - serves as more than just a celebration; It marks a call to act for women's equality.
At Women on Stage, we take pride in acknowledging and celebrating the achievements of women leaders in the global tech scene. But in light of the staggering statistics in tech, we understand there's still a long journey ahead. That's precisely what we strive to address.
In this talk, I will share the story behind Women on Stage and discuss the importance of role models for women in tech – not just on International Women’s Day (IWD), but every day. I’ll also explain why IWD remains profoundly important, especially in the tech industry, demonstrating why representation matters, and how we can all make a difference.
