Speaker
Description Women in Agile Europe 2019 is the first Women in Agile conference organized in Europe. This first conference will be in the Netherlands on the 7th of November 2019.

The organizers strives to have a gathering which is safe for all genders to network, where you meet your future colleague, share knowledge and show your awesomeness. In a passion charged event, where personal safety is a core element. No mansplaining, gaslighting or tone police. With this event they would like to start a European community of Women in Agile.

More broadly:
In the IT labour market the participation of women is a mere 10-12 %. In all other market (in Europe) 45%. They thought that % participation of women in Agile would be greater because of the sought-for-competencies are largely attributed to women. Still it is stuck on 10-12%. Of the 100 women that graduate in STEM, only 8 work in (i)technical jobs. So there is something going wrong….

It is important to include women (and all other ‘minorities’) in IT to solve the demographic crisis. And gain the proven benefits for organizations that have a balanced (gender) diversity. And there are some more issues we wish that could be solved too: gender pay gap, all male organizing boards, all male executive boards, etc. Maybe we can think of something that would help us, the companies we work for and the labour market.
