This fantastic website, started by Tiffany Conroy, is calling for women in tech to get speaking at conferences—all women in tech.
The fact is, men currently outnumber women in our industry. For women to be seen and heard with equal exposure as men, women must participate in disproportionately higher numbers than men. That’s, like, basic math. The fastest way for women to reach parity is for every single one of us to become active in the community.
We are all awesome. You included. Maybe you don’t feel so awesome right now, but I plan to convince you otherwise, and to help you.
The site’s barely been up for a couple of days, but already has some great posts on becoming a great speaker, dismantling some excuses you might have and why you don’t even need to know in advance about the topic you’re going to speak on.
Spread this one far and wide.
