Why Do “Women in Tech” Communities thrive, while Women in Tech don’t?
Ellen Chisa

Twice recently I’ve seen a new approach I like — gathering ‘Women in Tech’ a few hours (or a day) early at an otherwise general tech event. Every attendee knows it’s happening and gender equality is front of mind, women get to get comfortable before joining the larger group. The Boston VR meetup hosts popular hackathons, and they invited women to show up an hour early. A tech conference at the Media Lab next month has a Women in Tech symposium happening before the conference with a full day of programming — but it’s the same conference. Both are future, will let you know if it feels productive!
