#GoodRead | Speaking Up For More Female Speakers At Tech Conferences
Over the past few years, I’ve continually been dismayed by how few women are featured as speakers at tech conferences. According to one 2015 study in the U.S., only 25% of speakers at tech events are women — and in Europe I’ve observed certain conferences have fewer than 10%. Such was the case with Tech Open Air (TOA) in Berlin. Their initial line-up of speakers for TOA 2016 included only one female speaker out of 12 — less than 10%.
