Part of the reason I was hired in both Sustainable Living Lab and SpudnikLab was to signal to others that the companies want more women involved in the tech innovation space. That’s great! And since my first encounter in the tech community space 8 years ago, I have seen improvements in the way women are involved in the space. The barrier for women leading tech organisations remains high, but slowly and surely, the biases are breaking down.
As for my personal experience, I occasionally encounter mansplaining (Lord, spare me!) and microaggressions from men.
