As part of Zalando’s efforts to promote diversity in tech, we’ll screen the documentary Big Dream on November 10 at our Berlin technology HQ. This documentary film, directed by Kelly Cox and Iron Way Films and co-produced by Microsoft, follows the stories of seven women who overcome obstacles in following their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-related career paths. This is the first showing of the film in Berlin, so RSVP to join us!
Diversity adds value to business, yet the challenge to close the gender, age, ethnicity, religion and personality gaps remain wide. At Zalando Tech, initiatives like our Diversity Guild create opportunities for technologists and others company-wide to discuss diversity topics in the tech industry and our workplace. Our team is proud of the diversity we’ve achieved — more than 50 nations and counting are represented on our tech team— and wish to strengthen our open culture even more. Movies like Big Dream remind us of the importance of this work.
