Presentation Topic: Woman in Testing – How diversity benefits everyone
13:50 – 14:35 18 October 2017
Women are grossly underrepresented in the field of ICT and the world of software testing is no exception. It is to our industry’s detriment when we fail to actively include women on testing teams. Gender differences are not deficiencies and we will explore these differences and how diversity benefits everyone.
