Hello fellow women in tech, I wanted to seek your advice on how to handle a common gender bias question that I encounter in my workplace. Whenever I, as a female product manager, meet with business stakeholders, I often get asked the question 'Who is the technical person in the room?' implying that I may not have the technical knowledge or expertise to answer their questions. This is frustrating and undermines my authority as a leader.
Have any of you faced a similar situation and how did you handle it? What are some effective ways to challenge and combat this gender bias assumption? I want to ensure that my technical skills and knowledge are recognized and valued in the workplace. Thank you for your insights and advice.
