Women and Technology

Birds of a Feather

Following the talk generated at the Women in Technology event at MW2014, and continued at Museum Computer Network in Dallas, we propose to continue discussions about supporting women working in technology in the museum sector. Similar to last year, we are open to a variety of formats, and hope to be able to expand the discussion this year to include the subject of the acquisition of new skills.

Our goals for a women in technology event:

Inspire- featured short talk by a prominent woman in the field
Network- time to meet new people and build support system
Challenge- opportunity to build skills and extend network of support
