In an industry where women may sometimes feel like we’re constantly proving ourselves, it might be hard to ask questions; unfortunately, some people view question-asking as a sign of weakness. But the T3 Conference feels like a safe place to ask questions since everyone around you is questioning the status quo and asking lots of questions, too. At T3, there’s an assumption that you’re asking because you want to do something better, not because you don’t know how to do it. It’s great to see more diversity within the financial services industry, and especially at T3, where most of the tech geniuses have typically been male. It’s encouraging to see more women attendees and more women technologists!
