At our 9th and last meetup "Mulheres de Produto" (womans in tech and product) of the year at Movidesk, where we talked about "Product Internationalization" with Cristiane de Abreu and also a retrospective of the year here in Blumenau, with the organizers of the meetup.

Software internationalization projects have grown a lot and are gaining space in meetings and events across the country, but large companies like Google and Samsung have been adapting their systems internationally for years. Software internationalization involves many steps and also many people. Thus, understanding who the people involved are, how this process affects our work, and what my role is in this process opens doors for the professional growth of each one of us. So let's talk about our roles and share experiences.

This is «Decision Fatigue» she explained a little more to us on how it works, and how it impacts our lives as users, tech, ux and business. The lecture is based on two articles that Débora wrote and were published in UX Collective.

6th Meetup "Mulheres de Produto", with theme "Empathy that empowers with": Michelle Campos and Thais Pompeo.

The way we communicate within society (whether professionally or not) greatly influences decision-making and the relationship between those involved. It's natural to hear that communication is the "problem", so how do you improve that?

Nonviolent communication proposes a new way of communicating and the focus is on dialogues based on empathy. We have in front of us several resources and connections that are ever more agile. However, the more technology advances, the less our capacity for empathy seems to be.

At this event, will focus on discussing and deepening the great gains and benefits of clear and empathetic communication - opening up quality space for dialogue and negotiation.
