Reason for being involved in workshop: As a public speaker I am happy to have the chance to connect with so many different people. I think it's time to give back to the community by encouraging all the awesome voices we're not hearing, because they feel they're "not there yet" or worse "not good enough". This is particularly true for underrepresented groups often suffering more impostor syndrom than privileged peope do. I want to fix this!
About Martin: Martin is pretty decent at humaning and pretty good at computering, so he decided to use his computering to improve his and other's humaning. He loves the open web and open source and helps to make things better with, but not limited to, code.
Reason for being involved in workshop: It is very important to me that the technology industry gets more diverse and I already do a lot to achieve that. With helping in a global diversity program, I feel that I can get even more involved. Also, I have experience with talking at tech conferences and would like to share my experience.
About Marion: I have a background in languages and economics and I then changed careers to programming. I work as a full stack developer at Simplificator in Zürich. In my free time I like attending and speaking at conferences, and I dedicate a lot of time to get women involved in technology. I co-founded a free weekly programming course for women and I am an organizer and coach of Rails Girls. I am also co-founding Google's Women Techmakers in Switzerland with a few other tech ladies.
Reason for being involved in workshop: True greatness can only be achieved if people from different backgrounds work together. One way to achieve this is to enable diverse people to make their voices heard in communities. With this workshop, we can encourage underrepresented groups to have confidence in their skills and we show them, what is the best approach to speak at conferences.
