#HallofShame | 26% Women at Re/code's Code/Media

Code/Media, Re/code’s upcoming conference on February 17th, continues Re/code’s two year streak of Hall of Shame gender ratios.

Welcome to the GenderAvenger Super Hall of Fame!

Who doesn't love good news? At GenderAvenger, we're celebrating our first birthday by taking a look back at our original Hall of Famers to see who belongs in the GenderAvenger Super Hall of Fame! These conferences and lists appeared on the GenderAvenger website in 2014 and have since qualified for a second appearance in our Hall of Fame.
