Women and the IT industry

BudapestRegister & ticket

Date & Time: October 14, 2015, at 6 PM

Language: Hungarian

There is an organisation in Hungary that takes it all when we want to talk about feminism and gender equality. They are the group called Üvegplafon (Glass-ceiling). Some badass women with some unique ideas, and above all, with some real actions. Their conversation series attract many and they are the ones, who dare to touch upon the delicate issues and taboos of today’s society. Unfortunately, their events are organised in Hungarian, but let’s hope that sooner than later English will come as a natural second hand at these events. The upcoming talk will refine where women stand and what situation they face in the still very much male-led IT industry. And who will do the talk?  Júlia Bíró, tooling engineer from Prezi, Ádám Scheuring, product development, startup entrepreneur and Seres Szilvia media savvy (BME).  The moderator of the discussion is Anna Réz philosopher, one of the founders of Üvegplafon.

Good communication is the basis of all healthy relationships. And yet, we all have trouble with it. Negotiating at work, within the family, and in any relationship is always a platform to win or loose, to hurt or be able to convey a message without verbal violence. The first step, such as in anything we touch, is to recognise what we do. Are we violent? Or are we using communication in a firm, yet nonviolent way? This one-day training will help you to gain new skills and tools to develop your effective communication skills and your Emotional Intelligence (EQ). Éva Rambala, the accredited trainer of nonviolent communication will guide you towards a communication without criticism and judgments, towards a better understanding of your communication tools, and to how to show more gratitude while communicating with others. You will leave empowered and filled with self-developing kits to use in the future.  If you are interested in psychology, communication between people,  or simply, you have the desire to develop your skills, this is the workshop for you this November.

Brody Studio, as described by The Guardian, is Budapest’s epicentre of cool. And indeed, the great variety of unique experiences (comedy nights, gastro events) are giving us difficulty to choose.  This September, however, we found something exciting that matches our needs to empower you. Lottie Moggach is a British journalist, whose novel Kiss Me First is simply brilliant. She will join Brody Studio for a night where she talks about how identity alters in the digital age, how virtual relationships are based on dishonesty and other delicate new-age questions that hit right in the vein. This event promises some thought-provoking discussions through which you will be able to grasp a better understanding of yourself and your real identity in this virtual reality. The talk is accompanied by Kertész Endre cellist. And don’t forget to come hungry, this is a literally-dinner after all, and that means food for the soul and food for your body.
