A significant female attendance at a tech event is a great mark of healthy gender diversity and increased engagement levels in terms of exchanging technological know-how and finding potential women founders.
Here’re some suggestions on how to bring more women speakers onboard for your next tech event:
1. Don’t kid yourself
If you believe that there aren’t enough qualified female or minority speakers to fill your conference agenda, you’re kidding yourself.
CompTIA’s Cyberstates 2016 report indicates that more than 1/3 of US tech workers are female, based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That gives you a pool of more than 2 million women in the field. You can find the 10, 20, 100 or more speakers you need.
