Navigating Tech Politics: for Women

Monday, 21st March, Online Meetup

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter Online Meetups in March 2022

Overview

This Skills Matter Online Meetup is... Tech Politics. Join us as we welcome Alejandra Quetzalli, who will make the case for how many women are held back in their tech careers because no one ever told them about how politics work.

Skills Matter Online Meetup is a virtual meetup on the topics that truly matter to today's developers. At each meetup we are joined by an expert from around the globe to explore topics such as functional languages, mobile development, agile methodologies and machine learning.

THE FORMAT: A 40-minute expert talk followed by a Q&A session.

Managing Toxic Politics in Tech

Many women, minorities and disabled people are held back in their tech careers because no one ever told them about how politics work. More specifically, no one really warns them to look out for the specific kind of politics and abuse that big tech companies and start ups can be capable of. It’s time people were armed for knowing how to confidently manage tech politics in their career and not have politics block their career growth. In addition Alejandra will tell you all about the fun board game she is designing about this topic, which makes learning politics in tech more fun!
