On June 15th, we hosted the second Women in Tech meetup of the year organized by Split Tech City. The engaging panel discussion, titled ‘Different Stories, Same Experiences’, was skillfully moderated by Sara Dyson from Expat In Croatia. We had the pleasure of welcoming three remarkable women, Alessia Amanzi from Profico, Maja Giljanović from Agilno, and Stela Zorić from GetByBus, who shared their experiences with an eager and curious audience.
The Need for Women-Centric Tech Meetups
Women in the IT sector are still in the minority and often face unique challenges that their male counterparts may not even consider. Recognizing this disparity, our meetup aimed to shed light on these experiences and provide a supportive space for women in tech.
The Inspiring Stories Unfold
Throughout the evening, the panelists regaled us with fascinating tales from their careers, offering intriguing glimpses into their personal lives as well. From childhood aspirations to how they landed their dream jobs, the discussions covered a wide array of topics. Our goal was to gain insights into career development across various branches of the tech industry.
Diverse Paths, Common Ground
Alessia, a talented designer, Maja, a savvy marketer, and Stela, a dedicated QA specialist, showcased their diverse experiences and skill sets. Despite their different backgrounds, they also shared common ground, as they navigate their respective paths in the tech world.
Fostering Exchange and Inspiration
Meetups like these provide an ideal platform for exchanging experiences and mutual inspiration. While the focus was on empowering women, we were thrilled to see male attendees who came to support their female colleagues and learn from their stories.
