Panel: How to break the glass ceiling

A positive change is underway and more and more women are being found in software development. Nevertheless, a glass ceiling still exists in 2021. Together with experts and the audience, Stephanie Jakoubi and Christine Wahlmüller will discuss how this ceiling can be broken.

This session will cover questions like:

  • Is there a glass ceiling for women in development/IT?
  • How do networks/mentors help to break the glass ceiling?
  • Why do women have to prove themselves in leading positions?
  • Do we need a women quote?
  • Number of women in Development/IT/leading positions – are there differences between countries?
