Digital Dish 16: Invisible Differences

10/26/2021
The differences between men and women have been the subject of thorny debates for centuries. Still today, stories can be found in the media that vastly exaggerate these differences. Yet, much of modern research fails to support many of the gender-based stereotypes with which we are all familiar. Numerous studies have shown that the differences between men’s and women’s brains are far less profound than previously thought. If these differences are so slight, then do they really matter? And...

Over the past year, many working women have faced intense challenges brought on by the pandemic. This has been especially true for women who have been trying to balance their careers with the needs of young children.

This has, of course, impacted quality assurance (QA) and testing functions, which are integral to the product development lifecycle. In this episode, ISG’s...
