More Decks by Julie Pagano


  1. I am successful to spite every dude who said I

    don’t belong because they were afraid my success would challenge their mediocrity.
  2. I’ve been told I don’t belong at every level of

    my career from when I was a little girl interested in computers to now.
  3. “Essentially, engineering is all about cooperation, collaboration, and empathy for

    both your colleagues and your customers. If someone told you that engineering was a field where you could get away with not dealing with people or feelings, then I’m very sorry to tell you that you have been lied to.” - Yonatan Zunger
  4. Stereotype “an often unfair and untrue belief that many people

    have about all people or things with a particular characteristic"
  5. Maybe we need to give these talks to the grown

    men who keep spreading these stereotypes to push people out.
  6. My Technology Will Be Intersectional or It Will Be BULLSHIT!

    Julie Pagano @juliepagano (or: why you should start worrying and care about the diversity) 2012
  7. Do as I say, not as I do. Your life

    is too high a cost. - me, mentoring
  8. your continued survival in this industry despite the people who

    say you don’t belong makes you a badass!
