Why I Tech

I am thrilled about the opportunities that software technology brings to create a truly inclusive workforce. I love tech because it helps the world run better and improves people’s lives.

My personal tech/IT-trend 2017

There are many initiatives: Business beyond bias is a technology-based initiative that eliminates the unconscious bias in the attraction, hiring and developing phase of today’s employees. Accessibility of Software is another huge topic that will have an impact on differently abled individuals to join the workforce.
