Show Notes

These show notes are brought to you by Rebecca Troth – go check out her youtube channel!

The International Women’s Day episode with Sherrie Rohde and Tanya Soroka. Having more diversity in the workplace has been proven to improve performance. The group talk about the experiences of women as a minority and Tanya shares the differences she’s seen between working in US compared to Ukraine.

Would Magento Imagine happen without women? Yes, but in someone’s backyard (If Phil & Kalen were organizing it). The group also talk about how Magento also announced their partnership with Women Who Code, the Increasing Diversity in Tech panel taking place at Imagine and their new CMO, Andrea Ward.

Congratulations Tanya! 👶

“Do you value me because of what I know or do you value me because I increase your diversity count?… I want to have a job because I’m good at what I do.” – Sherrie Rohde. We all have implicit biases, what can we do to recognize and change that? We don’t intend to be biased but it’s a natural thing.

How diverse is the community and Magento? If you walk into a room and you’re the only girl it can feel a little strange. We need more female role models to help women feel like they belong at events and within the community.

“There are more millennials in China on Alibaba shopping everyday than there are Americans, period. “ – Phil Winkle. We need to think globally. Diversity and thought diversity are extremely important for getting different perspectives from across the world, after all most of the world is not in the United States.

Lets continue the conversation on diversity.
