Women in IT International Women's Day Panel "Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change" is the theme of this year's International Women's Day. While discussions of why women comprise just 20-30% of the tech workforce are nothing new, as technology continues to exert more influence over our lives, there is a growing urgency to bring more diverse voices into its creation. As Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women, puts it, "Innovation and technology reflect their designers and makers."   This episode features Enit Nichani, VP of Marketing at IGEL and Jan Mach, Sr. Technology Consultant at Lakeside. It is hosted by Heather Bicknell, Product Marketing Manager at Lakeside and Patricia Diaz, Head of Product Marketing at Lakeside. We discuss how we arrived in the tech field and why we've stayed as well as our perspectives on why the number of women in IT is so low and what needs to change.   More on IGEL: https://www.igel.com/ More on Lakeside Software: https://www.lakesidesoftware.com/ Twitter: @IGEL_Technology, @Lakesidesoft   UN International Women's Day statement: http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/stories/2019/3/statement-ed-phumzile-international-womens-day-2019 The Pixar short that tackles office 'bro' culture: http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20190221-the-pixar-short-that-tackles-office-bro-culture Women in technology statistics: https://smallbiztrends.com/2018/03/women-in-technology-statistics.html Women and minorities in tech by the numbers: https://www.wired.com/story/computer-science-graduates-diversity/   We're hiring: https://www.lakesidesoftware.com/careers https://www.lakesidesoftware.com/women-it-international-womens-day-panel Thu, 07 Mar 2019 15:39:04 -0800 https://www.lakesidesoftware.com/sites/default/files/Women%20in%20IT%20International%20Women%27s%20Day%20Panel.mp3

To Self-Service or Not to Self-Service? Ugh, Not This Question Again! People frequently use self-service for consumer tech—why should it be any different under corporate IT?   Repeat, low-level incidents like password resets and printer woes cause daily frustration for end users and help desk staff. These friction points sap productivity on both sides, which is why organizations have implemented various strategies to move the point of resolution closer to the end user. But before we can realize the benefits of IT self-service, we must ensure that it’s implemented in a way that’s valuable and friendly to the end user. Afterall, self-service only works if someone uses it!    In this episode of Lifeguard IT, we discuss the components of effective IT self-service (including planning, design, and communication) with a focus on improving end-user experience. Later, we talk about our favorite tech gift options for this holiday season.   Learn more: https://www.lakesidesoftware.com/blog/proactive-it-support-strategies-level-0-support-right-you   ***   Hey You!
