I'm leading a discussion on investing and entrepreneurship with Denise Howell and Patricia Nakache. I was hoping the investor panel at Always On yesterday would prompt Denise and me to figure out a discussion post to get the conversation going before our discussion on the 30th at Blogher. Denise and I conferred afterwards and decided the panel was so unpalatable (trying to be generous here) that we wanted to make sure what happened at AO didn't happen at our discussion. We'll keep working on a post to put up to get the discussion going online previous to the conference.
Lisa Stone writes about the list of speakers at Always On, color coding it to show that the number of women speakers is really low, and pointing out why Blogher is one solution to the problem of conference organizers being unable to think about speakers other than men.
I think another solution is to come up with a list of interesting women doing amazing things. I've been working on that list, but would love to get comments below with suggestions. I'll try to post the list this weekend.Posted by Mary Hodder at July 21, 2005 05:47 PM | TrackBack
