Testing Ask Me Anything - Diversity in Testing image
For this Ask Me Anything Ash Coleman joined us on the topic of Diversity in Testing, where she delves deep into the essence of community, inclusivity, and individual growth within the testing sphere. Drawing from her unconventional journey into technology, Ash emphasizes the inherent diversity in the testing field and advocates for a more welcoming environment that nurtures curiosity and open-mindedness. This discussion is not just about recognizing the value of diverse backgrounds in tech but also about actionable insights on personal and professional development, fostering an inclusive community, and the crucial role of organizations in supporting continual learning, especially as the industry shifts towards more technical demands. Whether you're new to testing or deeply embedded in its intricacies, this conversation offers fresh perspectives, encourages a broader understanding of quality in technology, and invites you to be part of a movement making tech accessible for all.
