After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Physics, Asmae went on to pursue a master’s degree with focus on IT security. Today, she’s working with data security at Axis Communication in Lund.
Susanne works as a hardware engineer and tech lead at Axis. Her role includes synchronizing between disciplines, supporting and helping new colleagues, synchronizing between hardware and software, mechanics and construction, finding solutions to problems and generally making sure nothing falls through the cracks.
For Andrea, programming wasn’t always the given choice. As a creative person with a background in language, she thought she was “too stipid” to be a developer. Today, she is working as a frontend developer – and is also a code mentor at Pink Programming.
On the road to diversifying the IT industry, we tend to focus a lot on the work we still have to do. How do we get more women to code? Why is the interest for higher education in data science decreasing in Sweden amongst female students? How can companies attract female applicants? We have a long way to go, but with Pink Portrait, we want to put a face on the women and non-binary in the industry.
