Women are still underrepresented in the STEM industry, with only 29% of the STEM labor force being female, and just 3% of industry CEOs being women. While many young women pursue STEM education, they face roadblocks after college, including low confidence, a lack of mentorship, and understanding salaries and compensation packages. Having a mentor can help women gain confidence and prepare for challenges, and it's important to have open conversations about salaries and benefits.
Technical debt, like financial debt, is something you want to avoid. In the IT world, technical debt is the work you have to do tomorrow because you took a shortcut to deliver the software today. Common causes for technical debt include lack of upfront definitions in design & development, starting a project without completing proper requirements gathering, and budget issues. To manage technical debt effectively, make it a part of your daily conversations, be an advocate for maintenance, have KPIs set for basic product expectations, and plan reasonable workloads to account for technical debt. Working smarter, not harder, is the key to managing technical debt effectively.
