Ignite SxSW Tech 2021: Uploading Humanism
OF COURSE there are women in tech, and their agenda is precisely the same as men.
The shift will occur when instead of thinking -- and talking about -- the inherently sexist idea of women (or men) in tech, we focus instead on the co-creation aspects. Think of that as the creative spirit, which traditionally is expressed in feminine poetic terms.
THAT is what we need. Balanced humanism is what we need as active agent in increasing the options, choices, and possibilities of others. That is what technology wants. (Running time: 5:40, embeddable)
Strategy is Motivation
Valeria talks about the concept of buyers vs. customers, and the process she uses when working with organizations to meet their goals.
The most frequently asked questions teams ask during a strategic engagement range from learning what best practices like companies use online, to how to respond in a crisis situation. Yet, by far, the biggest challenge organizations face is that of building continuity and consistency in their interactions.

Finding the Right Social Media Influencers
Valeria talks about influencers. Many companies go after the famous people online. Although these people do have a lot of influence, they are probably not the best option for your business. On the other hand, companies should be looking for the people that already care about their brand and are passionate about it. These are the people that will provide the most powerful influence.
