We Agile enthusiasts have a tendency to believe that we're miles ahead of the rest of the IT industry. And in many ways, we truly are. But let me share a personal experience that might challenge this perception.
Picture this: I'm a woman attending an Agile conference, ready to soak in all the knowledge and excitement. But there's one thing that never fails to catch my attention. Every time nature calls, I find myself standing in line for what feels like an eternity, just to access the women's restrooms. Interestingly enough, this never happens at general IT conferences. So, are we there yet? Not quite.
In this session, I want to shed light on the gaps between our perception of Agile and its community and the harsh reality we face. It's not just about diversity, although that's an important part of it. We still have hurdles to overcome, and it's time to cross the chasm that separates us from our ideal Agile world.
