A discussion on Diversity, Equity, Fairness and Inclusion for the IoT industry

Abstract:

While technology development races forward at tremendous speed, we try to keep up. Find talent, fill positions, and retain the right people. We demand experience and potential. What do these people demand in return? The digital transformation requires people with interest in technology at every level, and in every industry. How do we find and keep them as the talent shortage is here and growing every day? Eva will speak about how every one of us can contribute to a culture where people thrive and are productive, and leave us with tangible tips of how to improve as leaders and co-workers, by starting right where we are. Her book “Women in Tech, a Book for Guys,” is based on interviews with men in tech, and features seven character prototypes, and what they are already doing to support women and underrepresented groups at work.
