The Women in Agile initiative aims to empower and expand the presence of women in the Agile community. While efforts are made to increase recruitment of women in STEM fields, current female professionals often lack engagement and support. By creating a sustainable community of female leaders and mentors, the initiative seeks to enhance knowledge sharing and benefit the whole community. This year’s event encourages attendees to self-organize and take action through workshops, networking, and a New Voices program, addressing the involvement gap and promoting inclusion and diversity in the future.
