Subject Area
The lack of women in tech is evident in numbers and our experience. This imbalance has been in the focus of a public discussion, that has become increasingly difficult to follow and fueled by false accusations or false. So let's get together and try to understand what the underlying reasons are and what we can do to create a change. And most importantly ask ourselves: Why should we care?

or so decades existed you should junction occurring by his hex not gender by its raised by its appearance all superfluous things and this is something that we take very seriously at the CCC and so this talk is somewhat in that direction that we at the 1st camp while we started to say OK we want to enlarging or cultural space so we want to integrate artists you want integrated political activists people who need our help and Saudis can has been as in a kind of unofficial topic also about remembering that so remembering it back a community as a committed has special abilities special talents and that they have a responsibility but to use systems wisely and so we have come a long way of doing that byzantine making our committee more accessible but 1 of the spots that we're area still but lacking in our is making woman an integral part of our community and they are making them feel at home making them not feel repulsed by all this to some pickle stuff and so on in order to learn about its every and when that you want to talk about a woman in tech in general and technology fields to learn a bit more and to find ways of whole we can improve from the very monologic way just doing that go way of finding solutions to problems that we all can live so welcome well thanks a lot for the
introduction welcome to this talk about women in tech and I'm really really hyper
happy and grateful that I can talk about this topic that has all this to kind of important to me that I also think it's not really a given that we can talk about this topic because especially recently as the elected as public discussion has been so what he did up from all kinds of directions and of the of this event running into my computer and and often especially recently I feel like it has been dominated by accusation and conflict where I think that collaboration explanation of key to improve the situation so I'm really happy that you hear and that I have the chance to share the insights and I have and gathered over the last couple of years so on a couple of words about my 5th France I just get in take a couple years ago and since then has been a strong advocate of the so-called digital literacy often and Wolfman various projects that are aiming at
making knowledge about technology more accessible and encouraging people to get into technology and to 1 of those projects where the tails mentors some of you might know it's a program aimed at people visiting Congress for the very 1st time at the Chaos Communication Congress predicates computer Club and also encouraging people to visit the congress now doesn't to those experiences from time to time and gas soul and mind you the resulted in presented today of a mainly based on the is theories that have made over the last years and exchange with initiatives that also aiming at onboarding women into technology but also from talking about with women that are detatched or attached to technology and also about some research that I conducted over the past 6 months dive deeper into the scientific resources that there are existent about women in technology so I kindly ask you to understand that and using a lot of binary explanations today talk about women I do understand that women are not homogeneous kind of group that I can just turn the centers for pragmatic reasons so that we can solve an existing problem and yet let's get a small token goal directed to this very German tradition of expectation
management where many expect today from this talk and today I would have you know that about the existing challenges that God for women just so that we all get to the basic knowledge about yeah what changes they have and also how we can solve this together as a community because I think most of us are at least involved in tech or even key figures in our communities and we all think about how we can change that situation together and and thirdly have a talk about the reasons why we should care at all because I feel like this is the point that has been somewhat often neglected in the
discussion but I think it's about important to talk about this so we can motivate poor people to get involved and also if there's time left we might talk about limit and about existing initiatives but we see whether there will be time that so and it's got to 0
1st no 1 attack and what is the current situation and I could say boy you for ever with statistics and studies and research about the distribution of women in computer science and technical jobs occupations that companies and but I would do this because I think everyone of us knows this very well from their
own everyday life and a lot of sorry tied after local communities with was attained conferences conferences we are part of open-source development and we know this from our everyday life but are are only few
women in tech there are women in tech of course and Sanders is just a very normal thing but usually they are in the minority and they're different explanations for that's why that is 1 of them I want to present to you and found a particularly interesting as I read it on the block
off the planet money podcast and and talk about there's this particular point in history where the number of women studying computer science through as editor to drill there was in the middle of the eighties maybe some of you who have an idea why that is and their theory is that kind of interesting I say that the with the start of the distribution of the personal computer in people's homes it became a product that was advertised and I 1 he
invited to check out some old Apple spots about the personal computer being about computer being a people's holes and how little Jimmy can become a national because he has met computer and it's seeing solely reasonable and because it became a became aprotinin was this progressively advertised for bodies and the computers that had to be something normal or other usual in
boys to bedrooms it made it created at a very early stage and again or experience get far girls in school so they would they would act in school ornamentally school they would already have and far less exposure to computers than boys would have and this of course creates a leaky pipeline where girds would be able to compete as good and school and this continues and carries on but this is just 1 explanation and it's as very quickly to the next point of the challenges and and
and I put down the title of this be poured why are there so few we female their computer scientists and thereby and spurred as it was written in 19 and I'm really fond of this be poured it was written by a computer science student Burdisso's now Professor in Computer Science at MIT and she was messages wondering because she was always interesting technology and didn't understand was she was 1 of the few people have few women study in computer scientists such as science and her report it's very rare accessible to everybody who has been exposed a feminist literature for 10 years it's very easy and to understand and offers basic explanations of
almost every single point there was further elaborated and research and the funding 30 years and it's also an free to down on the web so
the 1st thing that I wanna talk to you about our stereotypes stereotypes are not necessarily in the the the something super evil actually there really helpful for us to help us to an categorize our environment to process all the millions of and images and in like that we are million of things that we seeing that we have to grasp and progress and that stereotypes always you have to keep in mind that stereotypes never come along there always go hand in hand with some attributions that we ascribe to recruit and what
kind of traits we ascribe to people's always dependent on the culture context that we live and so stereotypes and that we connect with them is always constructed and we do not only ascribed things we also started to to expect things from people that belong to a certain group and for example we might expect girls not to be good at maths and and when we start on yeah we might get for example and those things are quite powerful and they can even make people perform in a different way and this is called stereotype threat so when you might have heard of the term self-fulfilling prophesy and it sounds way more as a trait and actually it's actually based on a lot of research in social psychology about the trends type threat of the phenomenon that means the people also live up to the expectations that are put on them and so chances are good when the girls being taught and her entire chided that goes usually 2nd math chances are good that you will have problems in that and also this goes even further if a person that has a for example darker skin or is certain migration background in grows up in a context where this migration background of people with this bec 1 expected to be criminal as intelligent judges are very bad that this person will experience stress equality so in our area stereotypes limit the possibilities
that other people have we call those prejudice and if those stereotypes make people perform less well in a task we call the stereotype threat and I think 1 of the most impressive examples where this comes from a study from 999 when 3 groups of women the study was starting mass and had an Asian migration background were asked to perform on a math test and above all expected to perform more or less equally well and the 1st look only had to claim their migration background the 2nd London have Durkheim anything at all the 1 on became the gender and the 3rd 1 performed way above what was it expected and start 1 that only gave mentioned agenda where performed way below what they were expected to perform so simply we met remind people off the stereotype that they have a lot of trades can have a significant effect on the on the performance on a task so in our context this not only this kind of stereotype that is
very powerful they women can program or a bad at maths and there's also another stereotype about the programmer being there's nailed proceed and tinkering in that cellar so a 2nd problem and so just to to to extend it again stereotypes we all have them and and they are very very powerful and affecting asks how we see each
other in how so how we behave the 2nd problem that I came across personally a lot in
that everybody I talked to was working on initiatives also comes across a self confidence and women tend to evaluate their own abilities and performance way below the way they're actually performing and and assess Posner has turned out to be 1 of the biggest challenges also for me in working with them and that they they don't perform this well they just think they can do stuff and it's not only developing their own performance and abilities it's also about whether they feel comfortable going
somewhere with that they feel a prop of going somewhere especially with the Kay of mentors and as an excuse invest a lot that so the constant as we get about 100 100 trendy entries each year and last we had about 50 per cent female mentees and allows the right the e-mail and they say high I'm I have in the tony fascinated with computers as madam doing my Ph.D. in biochemistry but I don't know where they belong on the Congress so they often feel not appropriate and not me the belonging to a certain community as a when it's
happening that and and the next problems are a kind of relates to structural problems meaning they're ready deeply embedded in our society there's family planning
that women get pregnant and or that take care of the family or older people and of the parents when in critically years and they're actually have the chance to have another push to their career on the women are usually more area and Mori at 9 to moved together with it partners somewhere else and also of course deeply and intertwined with the client stereotypes the lack of positive role models and it affects a lot of that they can take any random cultural
reference to Hacker is its chances are good that this references males and of course environment and when a
community or a job and office Fourier group as may dominated it doesn't mean that this group this and deliberately the horse type how with someone but it can
be better conferences taking more into advantage and or into consideration the needs and interests of men just because they're the majority so as I said we're going to choose the hacker approach not delve into the problems too long but think about how we can solve this issue and I put together some solutions that have gathered and over
the last couple years and they might sound really really simple but of surprise that they're still not be and followed in considering how simple they are so the first one is the explicit and inviting this might seem really really sampled that if you are organizing a conference if you're leading a group if you want women to come to be
part of a community why not say it be explicit you have to invite women for them to actually feel welcomed this at the K as mentors for example and a lot of people told us that just along the fact that they knew all the of having a program that is explicitly aimed at making Alaska more diverse and expresses the aimed at onboarding women already took for them away such and a DeVault mind set of not being well count and it help them allotment of them told us that this was the only reason that using attend that knowing that the caring about this kind of stuff so in communicating but they're caring about this issue is the and secondly role
models of course women being on stage this is super important things and and manipulating the narrator that is dominant that their own e-mail hackers showing that there are 3 main hackers and in women on stage as a super great thing and but the also it's not the only thing that
we should carry about it's also about those women being in the hackers spaces completely novels not a big deal and I think that sometimes is even more important so whenever you have the chance to represent the hackers space to talk about it I was given my but there also women because if you don't chances are good that people will assume that there aren't any and also talking about this
issue and so this is a very good start and but also getting into exchange with other initiatives that have been working in this field are ready that have gathered some knowledge about this also talk to your fellow male colleagues or partners in France about this and of course to the women ask them maybe just hate to do you feel comfortable and all this is something that bothers you I know it seems very simple but I wonder if that everybody in this room is already thought about this and just showing during awareness for this kind of issue already is a huge step and and also of course talking about this publicly it's important and creating spaces for women and I know that this is a somewhat difficult thing and this has been discussed a lot recently but they think and have also been kind of a skeptic Towers's because hey doesn't this reproduce all the prejudices that we have there were many extra and treatment spaces but in the end it to solve the problem that women might not feel comfortable going to a space where and they don't feel like there is city invited or maybe bitch the more comfortable amid women when women explain something to them and so if you are the hacker's phase and hurt Reynaud
active engaged in your home town or city or neighborhood just think about organizing a women's workshop for example here a surprise them you women that you've never seen before most likely and also those spaces for women don't need to be physically it also helps a lot if women can connect each other because even if there is a study class where there are a lot of women and youth centers at the problem that they don't really and that they're still isolated because they're still separated from each other and and connecting women which in other has proved to be super helpful especially in universities and institutes yeah and nascent police more women in tech will lead to more women in text so might sound absurd but I think the more effort put in it and the more women they are going to be in tech the more this development will accelerate and I think and I also believe that this was usually helps also to make the landscape on an all generally more diverse so why should we care at
all and I think 1 of the main reasons there's fairness it's not about and I mean somebody doesn't wanna learn programming that phony finer control understand somebody doesn't wanna get into computers also told find that if somebody wants to which a given evil opportunities to enjoy technology just as we do and this is about fairness diversity in communities the broader we are is the more powerful we the up status the are the more we have and the more positive villages we have to react and what looked deep and diverse perspectives usually make us more and capable of dealing with different challenges and certainly what I personally think most supported this diversity in technology all life and not only our lives but everybody's life on this planet is being the last the
dependent and affected by technology and we should ponder about whether this technology shaping our lives and everybody else's should be created by a relatively small percentage of this Kenneth popular population and if we want to use technology for different interests challenges then different people with different perspectives to get involved and I don't think that only women code differently I think everybody courts differently and everybody has different charges in their mind different perspectives and different set of awareness and yeah I think in order to use technology for her different kind of needs and interests of the different people so I briefly just wanted to talk about what initiative say that I
think yes since we have on in limited time while much time is left and the wrong I would give this talk 10 minutes in the back in the audience OK they led it that much time yeah Ellen though this awesome I was talking
about this and connect the women to each other then and having yeah
maybe maybe a skip this right away and go to the
rate birds and yeah well but to the rates as right
away and an error rates hurts people in this world I
had a thank you so much for you work you talk to the race skirts they know best what to do it is and the rates that I think they were founded in Finland have been active in Britain where I come from from for several years
and it's and Banquet'' get too much money just give it to the rest of it as a guarantee you that the huge impact and I know people that have been doing the 1st the rates they do beginners workshops for and and we'll be on raids the framework will be framework and and they invites a lot of women made about a 60 or 70 got to 1 worship they have about 40 mentors at helping them out for 1 day 2 actually created at by themselves and I know and ever very sustainable model in Berlin as well with a Jones Learning groups afterwords right away and actually and work on a program and more project and I know some people that have been doing the 1st ever programming workshop 2 years ago after words went into half time work that bad off and now they're working as developers and after simply to a quit that developers probably for times of the
ways that different before and so it's a super super them effectively and I think is not about the income itself but it's also about women getting into technology and gradually change the perspective that there is and and there's also 1 the interesting thing
there's science computer science class at the cost of the takes me owned the shafts in Berlin and they have the 1st ever women's computer science class which son of the wider read to me at 1st but then a top to delimited solving so many
problems and actually they're solving so many problems that thing hey why don't you stretch it out to many other computer science classes for example having an hours that studying hours our family friendly and yeah this just briefly the much more important than other initiatives is the
fact that yeah here so I think that everyone of us has huge leverage in their hand to change things in our hackers spaces in our as a family and that our friends and also in our study classes and companies and I think from so for my reasons it after conducting this is 1 thing that I learned that and all the challenges that you might have noticed this but the changes that there are 4 women of so deeply intertwined that every little solution little
step forward will affect so many different things and so your little steps and your little support for initiatives and changing people's minds that the change a lot and yeah and began to make this community more diverse and even more pleasant for everybody to attempt so thanks a lot for your attention and stagiaire after the top there will be the
trends in the 7 session to exchange even more thanks a lot
