Women in DevOps Panel - Building A Pipeline of Gender Diversity for the Enterprise of the Future

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Just 26% of the computing industry’s workforce is made up of women, according to the National Center for Women & Information Technology. And, the turnover rate is more than twice as high for women as it is for men - 41% versus 17%. With this rate of progress, it will take until 2133 to close the gender gap.

What positives and negatives exist for women in DevOps? Why is the gap widening instead of closing? What are some best practices that are helping to move the needle? How can we all contribute to forward progress? What resources are available to help change culture and drive gender diversity and equality in tech in the workplace sooner rather than later?
