“When talking about a work&life balance, I’m often asked how I manage to do everything I plan. The truth is that one never has time for everything. But I know that I always can handle important things. That’s why one needs to define what is important for them and stop trying to be perfect. Done is better than perfect — that’s true” — said Olga Shapoval, Kharkiv IT Cluster.

The speakers shared that in their opinion gender does not matter in modern IT. Nowadays, any girl in IT can be successful and effective. So if you are still reluctant to enter IT — watch the webinar and don’t hesitate to join the leading industry in the world right now!
