This autumn we're focusing on the topic of developing a career in IT. That's why we decided to invite our friends, STEM experts from Switzerland, Georgia, Iceland, and Kosovo to share our stories and insights from different markets. After the panel discussion, we're going to watch the movie "Hidden Figures".
Participants of the debate as well as the moderator participated in the second edition of the #HiddenNoMore. Together with 50 women from 50 countries during 3 weeks, they traveled across the US to engage in debates, meetings, conferences, and discussions on the situation of women in the STEM sector. Nearly a year later we're meeting with them in Warsaw to sum up the progress.
