The tech industry is dominated by men. As a female engineering leader, Aniela always wanted to have more women engineers and managers working in her team. But somehow OLX weren’t hiring a lot and the reason was because women were not passing the interviews. They ran a due diligence to find out where women were failing during the interview process. Aniela will share the findings and the measures that can be taken to enable women's success in interviews.
