今年的7月15日，Ladies Who Tech联合微软苏州带领大家与“Teams背后的团队”进行了线上会面。来自国内和世界各地的观众参与了此次活动。我们意识到计划以及举办一场线上活动并不比任何线下的活动更简单。但是，感谢微软团队和Ladies Who Tech，此次直播圆满成功了。
Ladies Who Tech teamed up with Microsoft Teams in Suzhou on 15 July and took some of you to 'Meet the team behind the Teams' virtually. Viewers joined us from across China and around the world. We realized that planning and executing a virtual event isn't easier than any offline event. But, thanks to Microsoft Teams and the staff and crew at Microsoft and Ladies Who Tech, we made it happen.
Our role model and advisor, Gebi Liang, General Manager of Microsoft Teams and SharePoint China who is also leading the diversity and inclusion woman committee at Microsoft China kicked off the evening. She wants to make Microsoft the most popular company for women in tech to work for and is committed to make it happen. With the current job openings at Microsoft Suzhou, Gebi really hopes to have more women to join her team and to make the workplace more diverse and inclusive.
Our second speaker, Dan Ping, joined Microsoft four years ago and recently returned to work after her maternity leave late March. Upon her return, she was given a chance to join the global team working on Microsoft Teams to develop new products. One of the projects she had worked with partner and makes her very proud of is "Teams Display", dedicated Teams devices which will include a touchscreen and hands-free experience through Cortana. The strong support for her at home and at work allows her to have flexible working hours and work locations. The flexibility allows her to not only spend time her new-born baby but also take up new challenges at work.
The next speaker from Microsoft Teams, Qianqian, only joined the company 2 years ago. She has been given opportunities to travel around the globe and speaking about her work at Microsoft. She receives strong support from her manager to help other teams and not be afraid to make mistakes. She has learned to be accountable and to speak up when she has to.
在Ladies Who Tech，同盟的重要性不言而喻。接下来，由Ramesh为我们分享他作为团队同盟的一些经历。各行业的多元化都需要同盟的支持。
At Ladies Who Tech, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of allies. Next up, we had Ramesh join us to share his experiences on being an ally to his team. Being an ally applies to all perspectives of diversity.
