A Latina in Tech

A Latina in Tech

Cristina Cifuentes

09 November 2020

Having started my Computer Science degree while growing up in Colombia and later completing it in Australia, I went from being an overrepresented Latina to being an underrepresented one. Further, the female to male ratio in CS in both countries was also rather different.

Being a mum, a wife, a teacher, a researcher, a manager and a leader, in this talk, I provide some of my lessons learnt throughout my career, with examples of successes and failures throughout my PhD, academic life, and industrial research life.
