Warum Frauen genauso gut in High Tech sind und wir mehr davon brauchen
Technologiefirmen, vor allem in Deutschland, sind immer noch sehr männlich geprägt. Nicht nur der Mittelstand, auch die großen Firmen und Startups tun sich schwer in unserem Land, Frauen als Technologietreibende zu verstehen. Dabei kommt es gerade bei Technologie-Innovationen darauf an, diese mit dem höchstmöglichen diversen Blickwinkel zu betrachten. Ulrike Tagscherer erzählt von ihren persönlichen Erfahrungen und Lessons Learned aus mehr als 20 Jahren im Technologiebereich. Wie sie wurde wer sie ist, wie sie Herausforderungen genutzt hat, um zu wachsen und welche Rolle ihr Partner und Familie dabei hatten.
Präsentiert von WOMEN IN TECH Germany
