Nowadays, in line with the increasing IT recruitment demand, the proportion of female programmers currently accounts for about 6.5% of resources and has increased significantly compared to many years ago, especially the group from 2 years of experience (according to Vietnam Developer Report 2019 – TopDev).
In order to encourage women to pursue technology and to support the development of the #WomenInTech community, Sutunam has spent time meeting and sharing his wishes with many organizations, such as: Shecodes Vietnam, Angel Hack, Lean In Vietnam, … to create together new ideas and projects.
Posing Workshop – First project “Made in Sutunam” about women in tech
In late September, Sutunam had the opportunity to collaborate with Lean In Vietnam – the community for the advancement of women in the event “Posing workshop: Empower your body – Empower your mind”. With the purpose of empowering the mind, the workshop aims to experience with female employees at Sutunam, women who are working on technology to find and explore their own image.
At the event, speaker Truong Thuy Linh (Lean In Vietnam) shared with IT girls about advantages that body language brings in everyday life. Especially, when working in “masculine” industry such as technology, women should be proud of themselves and pay more attention to their postures and mannerisms in communication and work. Through this, participants are guided to practice confident and professional poses to express their own beauty.
Although for most of attendees, this is the first time to pose in front of so many people, a little shy, self-deprecating, but after all, each girl really once steps out and express themselves comfortably. Every small change is also a good start for you to become more confident and professional.
The event was ended, but Sutunam is convinced that the technology girls attending the workshop had a very clear view of their own reflection through every gesture, as well as how to make a good impression with friends, colleagues, employers,… And we are also seeing these positive changes every day from our own female colleagues. 😉
