I love tech, its my life, and I love conferences and tech events, they inspire me. But many times I’ve walked away with a niggling feeling in my stomach, like something isn’t quite right, like I’m an outsider. I talk but I’m not sure if I’m really being heard, I often feel invisible.
This is what it fees like for many women who go to conferences and try to engage, and try to get acknowledged. We often feel like we aren’t valued, or our work isn’t seen as important…. because…. well…we’re women.
