#HallofShame | 15% Women Speakers at WIRED Retail [UPDATE]

UPDATE: WIRED Retail has made progress, but still has plenty of room for improvement. There are now 25% women speakers at WIRED Retail.


WIRED Retail is a one day conference that bills itself as "an exploration of the future of retail" and promises "to present the future of retail - with those who are building it."

Apparently conference organizers Valtech and WIRED UK do not see women as a critical part of that future. Out of 13 Main Stage speakers, only two are women. That's 15% women speakers, a dismal gender ratio that has landed WIRED Retail in the GA Hall of Shame.

There's still time to make a change!

WIRED Retail starts on November 23, 2015. Conference organizers have more than a month to add more women speakers. Help us encourage them to make a change. By adding just a few more women speakers, WIRED Retail could move from Hall of Shame to Hall of Fame. We'd love to see that happen, but we need your help.
