Gender in Technology

Page history last edited by PBworks 15 years, 1 month ago



A Conversation to Discuss the Following:



  • Why are there such major gender disparities at tech conferences?
  • Why is it that readership of gadget blogs skews 70/30 male/female?
  • Is the skew perpetuated by the tech community (e.g. all male speakers at FOWA 2006), or are larger cultural issues (e.g. stigma associated with female geeks) responsible?
  • Is this a problem? If so, what steps can we take to alleviate it?


Outstanding Questions:


  • Should we have a panel of "experts" or just discussion?
