Inchooers at Magento conference? That’s nothing new. But 2 women Inchooers on the stage of Meet Magento Spain? Well, that’s something!
IT has always been a predominantly male industry. However, women are playing a huge part too! It is no longer such a huge surprise to see a woman in tech.

We are alike, but again, we’re different in values that we bring to the company and ways that we are handling business, especially on soft skills level. Research show that women are better at using soft skills that are crucial for effective leadership and superior business performance.Read more
