From Short-Order Cooks to Top Chefs: Shifting the Cultural Stereotype of Writers

Presented by

Guest: Melanie Davis > Host: Dawn Stevens

About this talk

Join Dawn Stevens, the Technical Documentation Wrangler, and her special guest, Melanie Davis, as they address a different Diversity & Inclusion issue in software —the marginalization of Technical Writers. Are you ready to claim your space at the product definition table? Then set aside that spatula, put down that order pad, and don your hard-earned chef whites with pride! Learn to stop asking product management and engineering stakeholders if you can add fries to the uninspired burgers they give to reheat and serve. Shift to asking them for the business and development ingredients you need to create inspiring and effective documentation users will clamor to consume. About Melanie Davis: Melanie Davis is a passionate professional communicator specializing in technical data transformation and content curation, and a long-term industry veteran who is currently wielding her editorial pen as Managing Editor, Technical Content, at Reltio. This webinar is brought to you by The Content Wrangler and Comtech. It is sponsored by Heretto, the content operations platform for knowledge management that turns your product content into engaging digital experiences.
