Breaking the glass ceiling in tech: Advice from three Atlassian engineering managers
The way to the top is never easy, but the journey is often more difficult for women. Three women engineering leaders from Atlassian talk about how women can navigate their way through biases and stereotypes to make a mark for themselves in the tech industry.
