The Lean in Agile for Women session is designed to explore some of the additional challenges women face in today’s workplace and to provide unique techniques to help women empower themselves and each other.

This exploratory workshop brings women together to discuss shared experiences to identify barriers and to explore techniques derived from Lean and Agile values to generate insight and facilitate targeted behavior change.

Lean In Agile is a community organization created to raise the value and visibility of women within the Lean and Agile spaces and beyond.
