Last Monday was very exciting. About 100 young women gathered in Monterail’s office to listen to our women experts from different fields—front-end, backend, QA, design, project management, and other roles. During the 2-hour event, we discussed possible career paths in IT industry and real life stories of getting there.
As I was contemplating the problem of few women in IT, I approached my friend Mateusz Sławiński, a Talent Manager here at Monterail. We had a long conversation that yielded some eye-opening (at least for me) conclusions. This blog is more or less a distilled essence of our conversation augmented with research that I had a lot of help with from my female colleagues. Thank you!
