New voices power our diversity, and we seek to lower the barriers to entry while empowering those voices.
Lower barrier to entry – conference submissions and breaking into that speaking scene is difficult. We’ve all been there doubting our skills and ideas. Women in Agile looks to help provide mentoring, templates for submissions, and opportunities to help new speakers and writers get noticed.
Showcase new ideas – With our broad network of professionals in the agile community and our very own Women in Agile website platform and associated events, Women in Agile has many open slots to showcase ideas. These can be through speaking slots, blogging opportunities, other professional development, and even business promotion. We’re looking to share our glow with everyone so we all burn brighter!
Grow the next generation – all of the activities are focused on growing ourselves so we can then turn around and grow others along with us. Mentorship and sponsorship are also key tenets of our philosophy and we want to share those gifts with the community so the reach continues far past where we could reach alone.
