The Sunday before the start of the Agile2018 Conference, the Agile Alliance is organizing the Women In Agile Workshop. This half-day event 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 will start with a keynote by April Wensel, an international speaker and the founder of Compassionate Coding, a social enterprise that is bringing emotional intelligence and social consciousness to the software industry through training and coaching. She has spent the past decade in software engineering and technical leadership roles at various Silicon Valley startups, building products in fields like education, healthcare, and bioinformatics. She also mentors widely and volunteers with organizations like Black Girls Code to advance the cause of diversity and inclusion in the software industry.
The remainder of the program will create an avenue empowering attendees to take individual and group action through collaborative workshops, and targeted networking. These activities will provide a sustainable learning environment with actionable outcomes able to be implemented immediately to further expand our community. Continued from last year, the Women In Agile Workshop will provide the opportunity for new voices in the agile community to be heard by including three short talks on the program agenda.
