Women in Agile Europe 2023: A Junction of Inspiration and Inclusivity

Updated: Nov 15, 2023

Just back from the remarkable Women in Agile Europe 2023 conference, and I'm brimming with ideas, insights, and an unanticipated amount of energy!

๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ By the way, this conference is for all genders, but the stage is reserved for women and non-binary speakers only to support the bringing of balance to future worldwide conferences gender-wise.

โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ The day kicked off with something I absolutely loved โ€“ blinging our badges!

It was a brilliant way to foster connections in a subtle yet impactful manner.

As an introvert and someone who is neurodiverse, large gatherings can sometimes feel overwhelming.

๐Ÿ’š But this conference was different.

The thoughtful scheduling, with 30-minute breaks between talks, allowing for a comfortable pace, ensuring I never felt 'overprickled.' I could network or sit by myself and restore.

Think: I saw across the day only a few talks, and I was deeply impacted by what I saw as I had so many to choose from; I could ๐Ÿ’ฏ enjoy my day.

๐Ÿ’š I even had enough energy left for a delightful dinner with some of the speakers โ€“ a rarity for me!

Over the next few days, I will be sharing a series of posts covering the key learnings and insights from the conference.

Expect a carousel of posts, each focusing on a different topic:

๐Ÿ”ฅ Bring Humanity Back to the Workplace โ€“ by Gitte Klitgaard

๐Ÿ’š An Agile Leader's Journey Across the (Diversity) Chasm โ€“ by Akemi Micallef and Rachelle Harvey

๐Ÿ‰ Bridging the Generational Chasm in an Agile Work Environment โ€“ by Willemijn Dijk

๐Ÿ’Ž Perceptions and Realities on Crossing the Chasms โ€“ by Jutta Eckstein

๐Ÿชฝ Dare to Be Different: Innovative Leadership and Intrinsic Motivation Strategies โ€“ by Ashvini Bisesser and Karelia Martinez Zambrana

Each session was a gateway to many ideas and strategies, and I can't wait to share these gems with you.

Which session piques your curiosity the most?
