Celebrating Women in Agile
Hi, I am Debra Hildebrand, and I own an Agile Training and Coaching Company. Nobody knows better than me what it is like to be a Woman working in the Agile community. So I started a show called “The Lurnist Show, Celebrating Women in Agile”.
We highlight fantastic women who are doing great things in the Agile field, all the while creating role models to inspire young women in high school and college to want to have a career in Agile.
The Lurnist Show
The Lurnist Show, with host Debra Hildebrand and co-host Lauryn Jenne, is broadcast live on Business RadioX every fourth Tuesday of the month. Our show is about Celebrating Women in Agile. We interview women who are leading scrum teams, building great products as a product owner or product manager, coaching or leading agile transformations, agile teachers and trainers, and any other women in roles that are related to the agile field.
Our goal is to highlight these women and to inspire young girls to enter the agile field.
Listen Live every 4th Tuesday of the month at 11am MST On Phoenix Business RadioX
