Trying to be Barbie in Ken's Mojo Dojo Casa House

Date: 2024-04-26
Time: 11:45–12:30
Room: Forum
Level: Beginner

Let’s talk about what it’s like for women in tech! Taking inspiration from the most popular movie of 2023, Barbie, we unravel the challenging journey of women navigating a male-dominated tech world. In this engaging discussion, we share poignant stories that highlight both subtle and overt instances of gender bias, offering valuable insights into the persistent hurdles that women encounter. By examining these narratives, we aim to foster awareness, encourage reflection, and inspire action to create a more inclusive and equitable IT landscape for everyone. Join us for an eye-opening exploration that paves the way for meaningful change in Ken’s mojo dojo casa house.
