TECHNICALLY SPEAKING

TECH@WorkplacePride is a special program in which views, experiences and best practices are exchanged which increases the visibility of LGBTI people within the tech industry, students, and in turn, society in general.

Decades ago, it seemed that some LGBTI people simply did not aim for a career in technology. Now we know better: today we see more LGBTI professionals working and contributing to the success of technology-based organizations.

In the tech sector, aspects like networking and interpersonal skills, as well as success factors are changing rapidly also. Traditional, hierarchical organizations are now shifting to being more network based, and interpersonal skills and personal branding are becoming more and more important.

This however means that remaining “safely” in the closet is more difficult.

TECH has been a focus in various workshops during Workplace Pride’s conferences. About one in three Workplace Pride employers have a strong connection to technology so tech@workplacepride will continue to be a focal point for the Foundation.
