Christiane Noll, managing director of Avanade in Austria, shares why it is important for people to come first in every business, her perspective on the diversity aspect in teams and the flexibility in her leadership style. Going further, she discusses the progress regarding the number of females on executive level roles in Europe and DACH area, the role mentoring and networking played in her success and the reasons behind choosing to get into the tech industry. Christiane also shares her views on the new hybrid world and gives us insights on her new book and shares the story behind the title – ‚IT GIRLS – Wie Frauen die digitale Welt prägen‘. She addresses the quota subject and argues why we shamefully still need to include it in the D&I strategy and shares what are the things she would have liked to know 20 years ago.
