An ongoing theme on this show is the persistent glass ceiling in Silicon Valley. Or, said more positively, the opportunity that’s too often missed when it comes to inclusive decision making and diverse opinions in tech.
On Friday, November 17th, there’s a conference being hosted at Mountain View’s Computer History Museum that provides a great one-day slate of women speakers — check out the panel here — and an excellent chance to network with people you otherwise wouldn’t get to nosh with.
If you’re a woman or know a woman trying to get into tech — the Women in Cable Telecom event, called, ‘Tech It Out’, is for you. Don’t let the organization’s name deter you either. Although WICT got their start in 1979 focusing on diversity in media, they have since expanded their initiative to include an emphasis on tech and software communications.
The cost of admission is pretty affordable at $10 for students, $25 for members, and $50 for everyone else. Register here!
And, it may sound analog, but bring some business cards and a notebook, too. You don’t want to miss out on any opportunities!
Listen to my full interview below with Jackie Danielson, President of WICT, for additional information.
