This International Women’s Day we celebrate the theme #EqualForEqual.
Here, a collection of some of our favorite pieces produced by, or featuring, women in our industry over the last year. These include profiles of industry leaders, conference sessions led by women, and popular writing here on the Sonatype blog. This small sample shows the many areas in which women shape this industry and our company.
