We continue working with Sabrina Walls from ADLIB to produce a series of articles on women in Tech. This month on Women’s Tech Hub please meet Tamara Chehayeb Makarem who is speaking at July’s girlgeekdinners @ scottlogic on the 20th.
Tamara makes the point that women need to speak out in mixed gender environments as well as women-only environments and this is something that we wholly agree with. The women’s groups that we support are there to create spaces that allow women to grow peer support networks, and we hope also build confidence that then flows back into everyday meetups and conferences.
We are currently working on supporting sustainability of the women-only groups and networks alongside our work to improve women’s visibility in the industry as a whole.
