Eye shadow and code don’t mix? Despite a sea change of attitudes and an influx of women in the male dominated field of technology, issues of inequality and discrimination remain.
Through humor and anecdote, Maya Bisineer’s Ignite talk shows you how to create role models that will foster the next generation of geek girls. She encourages people to think hard and respond differently to gender issues – be it with respect to introducing math to little girls or being more accepting of the tech women in their lives.
Maya’s talk mixes her own life story with tips about how to meet or be a geek girl and shows that yes, eye shadow and code can and do mix.
