Just back from the remarkable Women in Agile Europe 2023 conference, and I'm brimming with ideas, insights, and an unanticipated amount of energy!
💪🏿 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.
❤️🔥 The day kicked off with something I absolutely loved – 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.
💚 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 💯 enjoy my day.
💚 I even had enough energy left for a delightful dinner with some of the speakers – 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:
🔥 Bring Humanity Back to the Workplace – by Gitte Klitgaard
💚 An Agile Leader's Journey Across the (Diversity) Chasm – by Akemi Micallef and Rachelle Harvey
🐉 Bridging the Generational Chasm in an Agile Work Environment – by Willemijn Dijk
💎 Perceptions and Realities on Crossing the Chasms – by Jutta Eckstein
Dare to Be Different: Innovative Leadership and Intrinsic Motivation Strategies – 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?
