Women Technical Speakers

It's not surprising to anyone working in technology that we work in a male-dominated field. If you've been to a technical conference recently, it's also not surprising that the percentage of female speakers is drastically lower than male speakers. Is this due to the obvious gender imbalance in the field, the difficulty in finding women to speak, or something else? I'm not going to try to venture a guess - I'm just glad to embrace a site that is trying to "even things up a little" by providing a repository of women technical speaker bios for conference organizers to utilize.


Disclaimer: You'll see my bio on there too :)
