Event description

Description

The women of Brandwatch's R&D team are delighted to be hosting this event as part of the Spring Forward series for Women's History Month.

A collection of our female Data Scientists, UX and UI Designers, Engineers and Product Managers will be leading a series of lightning talks and panels on the theme of communicating across boundaries in the co-creation of software.

There are two main lenses on communication we'll be using throughout the evening:

1) The blending of art and science isn't easy, but it's core to our business of building simple software capable of solving complex analytical problems. Strong collaboration and communication across different disciplines, sometimes with very different approaches and needs, is vital to achieving this but it can be really hard to do. We haven't always done this perfectly, and it's an area we've worked hard on over the past 2 years. We're excited to share what we've learned.

2) There's no denying that we're operating in a male dominated field, and this plays into how we're perceived and how we communicate, collaborate and get things done. We'll be sharing our experiences as women in tech, from first impressions to the impact of frequently being the only woman in the room. We're a work in progress, not a perfect example, but we're keen to share our experiences and advice for what has and hasn’t worked for us in addressing this imbalance. We'll also be making space for open forum discussion, questions and suggestions from our attendees; we're excited to hear how other people are approaching this really important issue.

And of course, there'll be plenty of time for sharing a drink and making new connections!
