As technology disrupts our jobs, it’s not too late to turn pain into gain. But what are the current emerging professions and how to adapt your personality to them?

Many of you have heard terms like UX, UI, Agile, Web Design, Development, Front-end & Back-end, and many many others. But what do they exactly mean and which to choose to be a relevant professional in the future? What type of background and personality traits do you need to become, for example, a UX Designer or Web Developer? This is a great occasion to bring any type of doubts you have and discuss them all together in a group, and a fantastic opportunity for women to learn more about professions that they may not have considered before.
