The the Sunday before the start of the Agile2017 Conference, the Agile Alliance is organizing the Women In Agile Workshop on the theme “Empowering the Changing Face of Agile.
The Women In Agile Workshop is designed for both women and men who seek to create a more inclusive and diverse community that enables broad idea-sharing from all members. If you are a woman who is active in the Agile community, or seeking to become more involved and meet other women, or if you’re a man who wants to understand and support women in Agile, we encourage you to attend this valuable workshop.
The event will start with an inspiring young woman, Abigail Harrison (aka Astronaut Abby), as opening keynote. She aspires to be the first astronaut on Mars and has utilized social media to fund trips to rocket launches across the globe which she live streams to inspire others and share her experiences. Abby also runs a non-profit called the Mars Generation, to help empower today’s youth to achieve their dreams in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM). The facilitators will guide you in the Lean Coffee format to discuss relevant topics to smaller groups. You will take away insight from others, tools to increase your own involvement, and a support group to help you achieve your involvement goals. A closing keynote (to be announced) and networking happy hour will round out the event.
