by Darlene Bennett GreeneThe software community needs to step up its discussion around the treatment and role of women in the industry, because conditions aren’t improving.
That was the word from Darlene Bennett Greene, a participant in a PNSQC webinar in March. Greene, a leadership and communications consultant, former McAfee VP and a retired U.S. Navy Commander, will be among the featured speakers at PNSQC 2016. Her presence at the fall conference is sure to spark further discussion around her “cracking the code” topic, the code being how to fully integrate women into the tech community.
She pulled no punches during the webinar, chastising the tech community for continuing to ignore its poor treatment of women and calling for a renewed effort to bridge the gender gap. Following are excerpts from the webinar.
