#DigitalLunch: Women In Technology…

Many of the most visible people in the tech and many different social worlds are men. But there is a plethora of talented women working in technology. We want to hear their stories.

So far we’ve done #DigitalLunch sessions on Google Plus, Value and/or profit in digital journalism, social innovation, and then last week, Tourism in a digital age.

This week it is Women In Technology (#womenintech)…


– We kick off with a keynote interviewee for 5-10 mins, with other panelists then chipping in questions or responses. Volunteers/suggestions welcome.

– We’ll have a set of questions generated throughout the week via Google Moderator. This helps develop a strong a priori focus to each programme.

– So long as it does not breach copyright (rules are tight for this format) we can also show short videos and screenshare links to topical stories.

So we’re looking for a mix of ‘show and tell’ and oversight of the issues facing women in technology (including science).

Even if you cannot make it next Friday, we’d be very grateful for any help or suggestions for speakers you can give us.

We’ve already started taking (and voting) questions for the panel on the page where the event will start live on Friday. Please note that you can only contribute this way if you have a Google Plus account.
