Fed up with tech conferences that rarely represent women on panels and constantly reading news articles about technology that seldom quote women tech experts (as if we don’t exist), I started Women Who Tech. The group brings together talented and renowned women breaking new ground in technology who use their tech savvy skills to transform the world and inspire change. Women have been at the forefront of developing technology before the days of floppy discs, CRT monitors and corded mice yet major tech conferences and the media continue to fail to represent gender-balanced perspectives. Why is this? Do men do a better job at promoting themselves and developing their own personal brand? Are women in tech fully embracing their own power?
Susan Mernit, one of the most inspiring women in tech will be discussing what it takes to be a leader in this industry today at 11AM PST during the Embracing Your Power teleseminar. Highlights include how women can improve their skills as owners and drivers of businesses, both within a larger workplace and within their own business. What kind of emotional intelligence, mindset and conviction does it take to be as powerful and clear as you can be in your life—and apply that to whatever you do?
This talk with Susan Mernit, who’s created content, developed product and run businesses—and non-profit endeavors—in a wide variety of settings, from companies as large as AOL and Yahoo to her own small startup—draws on her 15+ years of experience working in tech and media, and on conversations with dozens of entrepreneurial women. This is a don’t miss conversation if you’re a woman in tech looking to connect the dots and better integrate your own professional ambitions and start embracing your own power. I’ll be there. Will you?
