Companies are still struggling with gender bias, particularly in the technology industry. Women are underrepresented in tech positions and in leadership roles at every level.
Women hold only 26% of computing jobs in the U.S. and 11% of executive positions at Silicon Valley companies. 
Join Michelle Gill, Linux Academy’s VP of Engineering, and Silvia Briscoe, a Certified Systems Engineer at F5 Networks, to discuss inclusiveness and diversity in the IT industry.

Silvia has been in the telecommunications engineering industry for over 20 years and used Linux Academy’s hands-on training platform to further advance her skills and career. She now runs her own tech bootcamps, serves on the board of directors at Software Freedom School, and is very passionate about inclusiveness in the industry!

In this webinar, you’ll hear from Silvia’s perspective as a woman in the IT industry about: 

  • Why it’s uncommon to see a woman engineer
  • How we can make it less uncommon and more the norm
  • How to create a community of inclusiveness in your own company or local area
  • And much more!

What steps have you taken to combat gender bias in the workplace? Join the conversation and let’s change the statistics together.
