We are looking forward to the Women in Tech panel at droidcon Berlin. It will be taking place during the Interactive Day on June 25th from 3:00-3:45PM.

The numbers show, there is still a lack of diversity in technology in both the startup world and the established tech industry. We are very excited to have successful women from the technology industry in different fields joining the panel to discuss reasons, implications, and possible solutions. Also, everyone from the audience is invited to participate in the discussion and suggest discussion questions upfront; don’t be shy 🙂

Key questions will include: What the current barriers facing women in the technology industry are; if and why diversity in the tech industry could be important, why moms can be great hires, and why role models are important to inspire girls to enter the world of technology. We’ll also go “meta” and discuss whether there even should be discussions about this and what the merits and risks of the ongoing discussion could be. We are going to be exploring these through the perspectives of both, the employer and employee.

And now, the
