Where are the female presenters?

May 16, 2008

One thing I noticed about the AODC Conference was the lack of female presenters, especially considering how many females were in attendance.

In one of today’s sessions, I counted 30 females out of a total of 56 delegates in the room. That’s over 53%. But of the 14 presenters over the three days, only two were women (some 14%).

There’s no obvious reason that there aren’t more female presenters. After all, anyone can submit a proposal to speak. There are some very talented women in the list of delegates, so how about it gals? You’ve got nearly a year to come up with a topic and submit a proposal. There’s no guarantee you’re proposal will be accepted, but you’ll never know if you don’t try.
