The path to agility is never complete, even the most seasoned agilists encounter obstacles throughout their agile journeys.

The Panel was compiled of scrum professionals— women with a diversity of backgrounds and agile experience ranging from agile coach and scrum trainer to product owner. These experts have been where you are and can help you find the path forward.
Our panelists will shared their experiences working in a male-dominated (and predominately white) field as well as their perspectives on the future of scrum and agile in the ever-changing world of work. They touched on real-world agility and real-life applications of scrum and agile in imperfect work settings.
