You're unique. Just like everybody else. Or how your perspective is limiting your work and hindering your team.

Saturday 11:00 Transformatorhuis #TH

We pride ourselves on being empathetic, but how does our intrinsic understanding of the world work to hinder us?

Individual perspectives can keep us from understanding others. Using gender as a lens, we can uncover fascinating differences in the ways we use language and storytelling to communicate, as well as distinctive modes of approaching technology.

In this talk, learn how understanding different modes of interacting with the world can provide us with a framework to uncover new ideas, better empathize with users, and build stronger relationships between teams at work.
