200 Stories of Women in IT. We Are No Aliens!
Stephanie Jakoubi (SBA Research) is talking about how to get more girls and women into IT at the womentech global conference 2021 (7-11 June, 2021).
In a survey conducted in 2021, she collected 200 stories of women in IT all over the world to answer questions like when and through whom they got in touch with IT the first time, what they love about the field of work, the importance of mentors, role models and networks.
The goal is to show women and girls how versatile and attractive the IT industry is by telling stories of women in IT. The stories should empower women to get into IT and to embrace their possibilities of thousands of specializations and fields of expertise in IT.
