It's no secret: the percentage of women and non-binary people in technology is much lower than that of men. And that number drops even more in leadership positions.
In this lecture, we will talk about representation: What is it? Why does it matter?
I'll talk about how thinking deeply about this can literally change the lives of the people involved and how those of you who are not women can support and help with actions (not just posts on Twitter).
Hi! I'm Pachi, your friendly developer relations person. After nannying for years, I started learning to code while building meaningful connections within the dev community. As a native Brazilian, I infuse her experience as an immigrant woman in tech into my work. My goal is to create newbie-friendly content to help make tech should be accessible to all. When I'm not live coding on Twitch, I watch anime, read too many romance novels, and complain about the patriarchy on Twitter.
