I wasn't aware people put me in the box ‘colored woman' until i was asked to contribute for a session during Women in Agile.
And it makes me wonder….
Yes, I am a woman
Yes, I am colored
Yes, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth
Yes, I work in a man dominant environment
And guess what, I'm a vegetarian too
Who cares? What you give attention grows negatively or positively.
Join me for my panel. I am going to show you diversity has more faces but that's ok.
What matters is how you can discuss this subject with the people around you.
I am doing a lot of research at the moment about the impact of diversity on teams, their output and the quality of their product. I am convinced that we should embrace our differences rather than trying to make everyone equal, which is why it is crucial for me to listen to different perspectives on that topic. I think, the selection of the panelists was perfect, both Remke and Kristel have their own views on the topic and could articulate those views very well. Also, the other participants asked very interesting questions that gave me a lot to think about 🙂
Great interactive meeting
Thanks for bringing this topic to the table it was a great interactive meeting and I liked the discussion.
