So I was wondering about my career and what success means to me... Read more in the thread :) #career #careeradvice #professionaldevelopment #womenintech #womeninstem #womenwhocode #girlswhocode
Sometimes, I like to ponder on what I have been doing in my career and whether I am living the life that I want. I've often been labelled as an ambitious go-getter (in the nicest way, I think!). Some might even consider my career history as a success story.
But for me personally, I don't consider it as a success story. Allow me to explain...

What’s something that every software engineer should try? #developer #webdeveloper #webdev #coder #womenintech #career #careeradvice
Software engineers are makers by nature but they tend to lose this creative side as they begin their corporate careers, be it at startups or fortune 500 companies. Some say you can’t have everything in life — you can’t be an employee and an entrepreneur.
But I challenge that, and I say, you can have you cake and eat it too. Just because you’re working for someone doesn’t mean you hand over your creativity. There are many ways to create as a developer, aside from your full-time job as an employee.

Happy first day of #BlackHistoryMonth! To celebrate, we'll periodically take time to honor the brilliant Black minds that have contributed to our field over the years. A thread: Image
First up in our series: @6Gems, who founded @BlackGirlsCode after noticing the severe underrepresentation of minorities in the startup world. Bryant's nonprofit has enabled many young black girls to create meaningful work & go on to become leaders in their communities. #BHM2022 Image
@6Gems @BlackGirlsCode Katherine Johnson was a human computer whose calculations were essential to @NASA's Project Mercury, Apollo 11, and more. When the space program switched to digital computers, Johnson helped confirm the accuracy of their calculations. Image

This makes me so 🤢

The idea that women are automatically “safe” is exactly what creates this “opportunity” for some women to exploit children & monetize their “optics” of “trustworthy” on behalf of predators.

Gender does not predict ethics, integrity, safety.
Why does #GhislaineMaxwellTrial matter to #womeninSTEM?
⬇️federal funding
➡️private donors (Epstein)

“Socialites” open doors to elite spaces, including #academia #science #STEM
Women=“optics” & “reputation management” for these wealthy predator men…
These same connected women, often daughters of powerful businessmen

are on boards of #WomeninSTEM “empowerment” organizations or on #MeToo (TimesUp scandal)

the very women who are predators of young women are given access to women’s “safe spaces”? (!!!)…

When hiring managers read your resume, they`re looking for more than just an overview of your experience. They`re also looking for growth, specifically:

#BlackTechTwitter #womenintech
1. Career progression

Experience is one thing, but if you’ve stayed in the same role for the past 10 years without moving up, hiring managers are going to want to know why .
No career growth = a possible red flag .

Being promoted or taking on different roles at the same company shows that you’re capable of professional development .

Loved this line from @McconnellKyla:
"I realized I was becoming a copy/paste data scientist and decided that I should invest more time in this"
@McconnellKyla @TnaniHedia just compared programming with playing during her journey of learning coding! Great way to see it! 😀

Software tester role is dead, or it is slowly dying in tech companies. Don't get me wrong, I believe that the role of a software tester/QA is truly an important one in the product development lifecycle.
#qa #tester #careerintech #womenintech #career #careeradvice
However, it's so important that it must be done by those who are building the thing (aka developers).

If you're a QA and looking to reinvent yourself, here are a few roles that might be suitable as they share some of the skills & characteristics of a QA.
- Front-end Developer
- Technical Program Manager
- Site Reliability Engineer
- DevOps Engineer

1. Always be learning

Tutorials fatigue — it’s real. If you think you’re learning something by going through endless books, videos and tutorials then you’re simply wasting your time. Pick a few options, be it books, videos or any other format and stick with them.
Chances are what you learn in a video will be very similar to another tutorial that you’re reading on the same topic. To give you another example, I did a quick search on Amazon about React Javascript framework and there were about 700 books on the topic.

It's a true #womenintech issue that there isn't enough representation of all genders in the speaking pool. Easier to fix that
we cannot assume that the audience actually wants us there. A thread.
I know from experience that some audience members do not want a female speaker. We know from studies that female professors are judged more harshly in feedback. In my own feedback over the years, I've had plenty of malicious commentary from audience members. Memorable examples 2/
- why isn't she standing in front of the podium? I can't see her legs
- I like how I see her curves when she stands in the light in front of the projector
- isn't she a bit old for marketing?
and that doesn't include the ogling during the session when I present. Ugh😡🤢

The only feelings to center on are those of black community
Wrong use of this quote during the week of #DerekChauvinTrial

Some people “feel” things if a white male faces accountability
Amy Cooper’s feelings: call cops
Racism & racism lite has always focused on “feelings” #BLM
When @ayshakhoury or @uche_blackstock were authentic in their feelings: ended careers

Black female physician #DrSusanMoore having “knowledge” or a “voice”
while DYING
made others
*feel* “intimidated.”

This is part of a known pattern for WOC
#BLM #BlackintheIvory
This is a repeating pattern of “feelings” used against tellers of uncomfortable truths that #MLK described in the letter from the Birmingham jail.

Seeking order > justice or overpolicing are all to protect only certain “feelings” of “security” while those like #adamtoledo die.

The European Commission presents an interesting proposal to regulate high risk AI systems. Hey, we’re on our way to become a global standard setter and to align AI with democratic European values. Or aren’t we? Here are some of my preliminary observations:
#AI #womenintech
AI systems that manipulate human behavior “to the detriment” of the persons using the systems shall be banned. That is a great idea. But the devil is in the detail. What does “detriment” exactly mean and how can those persons know and prove they have been manipulated?
AI systems used for “indiscriminate surveillance” shall also be banned – if applied “in a generalized manner to all natural persons without differentiation”. Does that qualify as a ban of targeted (surveillance) advertising? Asking for a #DSA shadow rapporteur.

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines…
You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

A few months ago, I hired an equally qualified woman for less money than I offered a man for the same position.

This is a story about unconscious bias.

#sktech #womenintech #womeninstem #EqualPayDay #cdnpoli #skpoli
#Equalpay for equal labour continues to plague every economy and corporation around the world, with the median pay for women remaining stubbornly 15-20% lower than men, even in countries working hard to do better with legislation, education, and systemic interventions.
Women are perceived as less technical during hiring interviews, they have to prove competence more often than men to justify rewards, including promotions, and they are more likely to take on or be assigned “office housework”.

LOVE being faculty at @MIT this semester for a class on #dataanalytics & #datascience. I tend to PM my mentees, especially women and #blackexcellence to start to prepare questions to ask. Too often people stay silent. Speak up. Never be embarrassed to show #curiosity.
Listening right now to mid-semester progress reports from teams and am feeling like such a proud #datascience #BigData #bigdataanalytics momma. Bear cubs doing good (well AND good in world)

LOVE that this is a space within @MIT that focuses on #SDoH and #equity.
Literally right now, hearing about a study on #socialmedia chatter as a driver of vaccines hesitancy driven by #Twitter - start postulate "cause/effect" by an incident that happens within days after a vaccine - like ppl automatically assume a death is "caused" by vaccine

🎉 Excited to share our first Top Workplaces for Women report, covered by @axios this morning. We asked Elpha members to rate & review how likely they are to recommend their workplaces to other women. #womenintech Here’s what thousands of them said:
1/ Internal networking opportunities are the most important attribute for a women-friendly workplace.

Women who rated their companies very highly mentioned internal networking groups at their orgs - communities of women supporting each other’s growth. Image
2/ Work environments with power dynamics that are perceived as unhealthy and unbalanced drive the lowest scores.

Elpha members who rated their companies 1-5 cited poor direct management, microaggressions, and a “white-male-driven power structure." Image
