Why We Need Tech Events for Women

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market dana oshiro Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… At the last Twiistup event, on a panel with diehard Los Angeles entrepreneurs and investors Yammer CEO David Sacks explained that Southern Californians wouldn’t need to have a panel on Los Angeles startups if it really did receive the same recognition and credit as Silicon Valley. This week the Bay Area is hosting two women in tech events including yesterday’s Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference and upcoming weekend event She’s Geeky. While both events feature major industry leaders, I can’t help wondering if a separate conference for women is akin to the separate panel for Southern Californians. As per Jolie O’Dell’s Open Thread on Women in Technology, we know that gender separation between web professionals is a controversial topic. In a tech community that often identifies as a meritocracy, we asked three event organizers why the industry needs female-centric events.The Girls in Tech Catalyst ConferenceCassie Phillipps has helped produce a number of tech events including Failcon, San Fran MusicTech Summit and now the Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference. When asked why she saw the need for a women’s tech conference she replied, “The opportunities for women in technology companies are still extremely sparse and our conference is one way to help women build confidence and create a platform for their ideas to be heard. By putting on this event I know we’ve identified some of the best women in the field and we’ve likely tripled the list of good female speakers for other tech conferences.”BlogHerSpeaking as a panelist at yesterday’s conference, Elisa Camahort Page is a veteran when it comes to mobilizing women. Page started the BlogHer conference and quickly turned her popular event into a revenue-generating blogging network with more than 20 million unique visitors per month. Says Page, “We started BlogHer in 2005 to answer a question we thought had to die, namely: ‘Where are the women bloggers?’ The truth is that women are more than half the population, more than half the voters, more than half the Internet users and about half the bloggers. Moreover, women control more than 80% of the household spending. And yet women are not represented to anywhere near that degree in *any* hall of power from industry, to politics, to the media. So until that day, we see a lot of value in our mission to shine a spotlight on the great work of women, and serve our mission of creating opportunities for women to pursue.”She’s Geeky UnconferenceKaliya Hamlin is well-known for her work as the co-founder of the Internet Identity Workshop. ReadWriteWeb had the pleasure of working with Hamlin at the ReadWriteWeb Real-Time Summit and when she’s not facilitating our events, she’s producing and facilitating her own. Hamlin launched the 2-day long She’s Geekyunconference as a place for women in technology to network. She suggests several reasons why women are under-represented as tech leaders including job descriptions which deter women by asking for typically male qualities and the potential isolation of being one of few women on a mostly male team. She cites Clay Shirky’s Rant About Women in suggesting that women underrate themselves and lack role models, while men proactively promote themselves. Hamlin suggests that events and in-person meetings between women in tech fill the gap for role models. She says, “I think the world would look a lot different if half the developers were women. Information technologies are shaping the future and if women are not active participants in the product design and development, then their perspectives are not included and it won’t work for them.” Hamlin points out that many of the first modern programmers – those working on the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC)– were women. For a look at some of today’s successful founders and technology professionals, she points to the Women 2.0 list of founder successes. “Young girls need to be encouraged to study the basic courses that lead to careers in tech. It’s still not the “organic” choice for them or the career channel encouraged by adults.”As part of her quest to provide positive female role models in tech, Hamlin is showcasing some of the best female technology groups at a booth at South by Southwest including DevChix, LinuxChix, Anita Borg Institute and Women 2.0.

On Basketball: Kyrie gets a new address, but Cavs win trade

But the sum of the parts says Cleveland got the better of Boston in this swap of All-Star point guards. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane, File)MIAMI— It’s not the principals that will define the blockbuster trade between Cleveland and Boston. Great point guard leaves one city for another.

Minnesota never offered Andrew Wiggins. Miami never offered half its roster. Portland wasn’t giving up Damian Lillard. In the end the Cavs still got a star for a star, and since Thomas is only making about $6.3 million next season they got plenty of bonus parts as well to make the trade work.It also solved one big Cleveland problem.James’ only motivation is rings, and this move gives him just that.He will be looking to go to the Finals for the eighth consecutive year. Only three teams in NBA history have been to four straight finals — the Lakers, the Celtics, and the Miami Heat when James was with them. Golden State will be heavy favorites to join that club next June. The Cavaliers won’t surprise many if they join them.James will show up at camp in a couple of months and begin plotting ways to get his team back to the Finals. Had Irving still been there, James surely would have been wondering if they could make it work again. With Thomas, there won’t be a question. James and Thomas already have great respect for one another, and Thomas runs on the same prove-people-wrong gasoline that James uses.Cleveland has been through the free-agency-is-looming dance with James before, of course. If the Cavs want to keep him next summer, they simply have to go all-in to make him as happy as possible. This trade probably wasn’t a bad start on that front.In Boston, the Celtics will look very different this season.Irving and Hayward are in; Thomas, Crowder, Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and Amir Johnson are out — meaning five of Boston’s seven top scorers from a No. 1 seed now play elsewhere.The Cavs weren’t overhauled; Irving is gone, Thomas, Derrick Rose and Jeff Green arrived.From a continuity standpoint, obvious edge to Cleveland as well. SEA Games: PH’s Alisson Perticheto tops ice skating short program There are many ways to claim victory in the deal made Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving wanted his own team and got it, so he wins. Isaiah Thomas gets to play with LeBron James, so he wins. The Cavaliers got rid of a supposedly disgruntled star, so they won. The Celtics now won’t have to decide if Thomas is worth something like a $180 million deal next summer, so they won. It’s all semantics.But look past all that.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutIn the end, Cleveland won. James won, too.Here’s a few reasons why James will be celebrating this deal: He’ll still have a high-octane point guard; he’s getting an absurdly good defender in Jae Crowder (he could have helped the Cavs’ cause against Golden State in The Finals); he won’t be going into the season dealing with drama about Irving’s Cleveland future; this trade might even reap the Cavaliers the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.

Danny Ainge knew winning the Eastern Conference’s regular-season crown last season was meaningless, so he completely blew up a team that was a No. 1 seed and got hammered by the Cavaliers in the East finals. Sure, the Celtics played most of that series without Thomas, but that wasn’t going to matter. The Cavs weren’t losing that series.So Ainge goes out and gets an All-Star point guard in Irving, after he hauls in Gordon Hayward during free agency and adds probable rookie of the year front-runner Jayson Tatum to the mix in the draft — plus gets another draft pick in either 2018 or 2019 for his trouble.It’s not a bad deal for the Celtics. They get Irving. It’s his team. A storied franchise is in his hands and he will savor that.It’s just a better deal for Cleveland, at least right now.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

Tories accuse Morneau of hypocrisy on budgets gender equality measures

first_imgOTTAWA – Conservative deputy leader Lisa Raitt is accusing Finance Minister Bill Morneau of hypocrisy when it comes to budget measures aimed at boosting the equality of women and their participation in the workforce.The accusation prompted a tense exchange Monday during an appearance by the minister before the House of Commons finance committee, in which Morneau indirectly referred to the Conservatives as Neanderthals.Raitt opened Opposition questioning of the minister by noting that February’s budget mentions the word “gender” 358 times in 368 pages. She argued that the sincerity of the government’s commitment to equality should be judged by Morneau’s track record, both in his past role as head human resources giant Morneau Shepell and in his current position as minister.During his time at Morneau Shepell, Raitt said only three of nine positions on the board were held by women, only three of 11 senior managers were women and the company’s governing charter made “no mention of diversity, inclusion, gender.”And in the company’s annual reports dating back to 2011, “never once” was not hiring women mentioned as a risk.Moreover, Raitt said only four out of 11 senior bureaucrats at Finance Canada are women. And in Morneau’s own office, she said there’s only one woman among six senior staff.“Aren’t you just buying votes, minister? Isn’t that what this whole budget is about?” Raitt demanded.“It’s a cynical political gesture … because you do not at all emulate or try to foster any of the things that you’re talking about in the budget, either in your past corporate life, within your own department or even in your own ministerial staff. Isn’t this just a way to get a woman’s vote? Isn’t that what this is all about?”Morneau seemed taken aback by Raitt’s line of questioning.“I actually find your line of questioning to be offensive,” he said, adding that he and the government “absolutely believe” that promoting women into positions of leadership is a key to a successful economy.“We will drag along the Neanderthals who don’t agree with that and that will be our continuing approach,” he added, in apparent reference to Conservatives.“I’m not a Neanderthal,” retorted Raitt.Morneau’s latest budget included a new parental leave benefit aimed at encouraging men to take a greater role in caring for newborns and allowing women to return to the workforce sooner. It also included a promise of pay equity legislation for women in federally regulated sectors and billions in funding to boost the participation of women in trades and agriculture, help finance women entrepreneurs and power the government’s feminist international aid policy.The budget also earmarked funding for women’s groups, promoting gender equality and combating gender-based violence, as well as money to boost the participation of women and girls in sports and to set up a unit devoted to gender, diversity and inclusion within Statistics Canada.Liberal MP Jennifer O’Connell came to Morneau’s defence, pointing to the Conservatives’ own hypocrisy on gender equality. She pointed out that there are no female Tory members of the finance committee — Raitt was sitting in on Monday’s meeting but is not a member — and only eight women in the party’s current shadow cabinet.Moreover, at best, she said women made up less than one third of former prime minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet, whereas half of Justin Trudeau’s ministers are women.She also went after the Conservatives for appearing to suggest the measures in the budget aimed at women are purely political gestures with no economic impact.“Is parental leave enhancement so that women can get back to the workforce buying votes for women?” O’Connell asked.“What about the funding and the carve outs for supporting women entrepreneurs? Is that buying votes? … We can all go back to the dark ages of the Harper Conservatives, but that hasn’t helped women.”Morneau said one third of the economic growth experienced by Canada over the past 40 years has been generated by women entering the workforce. But he said there’s still room to do more, getting women’s workforce participation rate, currently 61 per cent, closer to that of men at 70 per cent.With Canada facing “significant demographic challenges” as the baby boomers reach retirement age, Morneau said it’s particularly important to ensure that all Canadians who want to work are able to achieve their full potential.last_img read more

Ohio State football more than all right with JT Barrett at quarterback

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett scans the field during practice at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Aug. 9.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorWhen a team loses its senior Heisman-candidate quarterback, it can typically expect to see a big drop off in its offensive strength.If you ask Ohio State redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett, though, he’ll tell you that won’t necessarily be the case as redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett takes the place of the injured Braxton Miller.“I think with the way they (Barrett and redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones) have been playing right now, I don’t think we’ll skip a beat,” Vannett said Monday after practice. “I think we’ll be just fine.”While Barrett has yet to take a snap outside of practice for the Scarlet and Gray, he and Jones have been practicing with the first-team offense since the spring. Miller initially injured his shoulder against Clemson in the Orange Bowl to end last season, paving the way for Barrett and Jones to get the only significant reps at quarterback in spring practice.Miller was limited again this fall because his shoulder was sore after an offseason surgery. And then he tore his throwing shoulder labrum in practice Aug. 18.Vannett said practice time will help the offense continue on the same beat going forward, even though the team initially expected Miller to make a full recovery from the first injury.“We did a really (good) job with our quarterbacks, 0having J.T. and Cardale getting reps in the spring as well with (Miller) out,” he said. “It’s not like it’s a last minute thing where we’re just jumping in and kind of rushing stuff.”Senior wide receiver Evan Spencer said there will be changes to the offense, but agreed that Barrett, as well as Jones if he plays any reps, will be ready to go because of the amount of practice time they’ve had since the season ended.“They’ve been throwing the ball so much all throughout camp, and really all throughout the offseason, that it’s not that much of a transition for us just because that’s what we’ve been going through,” Spencer said.While many wrote off OSU as a contender in the National Championship race after Miller went down, Spencer said he’s seen enough in practice to have plenty of confidence heading into the season.“Personally, I think what we’ve been seeing out at practice — and a lot of the other seniors can back me up — is … we’ll be way more than all right this year,” he said. “That’s for sure.”OSU coach Urban Meyer said he believes Barrett and Jones have been up to the challenge since Miller was injured, and the changes at the position will be helped along by a plethora of talented receivers.“J.T. and Cardale responded very well (after Miller’s injury),” Meyer said at a Monday press conference. “The biggest issue I see, or the positive we have right now, is we have a good one and two group of receivers that are just rotating out.”Meyer said there will be six different receivers rotating through the lineup, with the plan being to give Barrett the freshest and most rested targets possible throughout OSU’s season opener.Then-redshirt-freshman quarterback Cardale Jones (12) avoids a defender during a game against Florida A&M Sept. 21 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 76-0.Lantern file photoEven though Meyer announced Barrett as the No. 2 quarterback before Miller went down with his injury, he said there isn’t a big gap between his and Jones’ talent. The third-year OSU coach confirmed, though, that Barrett is the starter heading into the season.Meyer also said it would be possible for Jones to come in for Barrett if the latter doesn’t perform up to expectations in the first weeks of the season.Regardless of his performance on the field, Spencer said the team has confidence in Barrett as a leader, which is a role he has taken on since Miller’s injury.“You could kind of tell from the beginning of camp that (Barrett) was trying to work on his maturity and his leadership as a young player,” Spencer said. “But after Braxton went down in practice, I think he kind of realized pretty quickly, ‘All right, well, time to take a leadership role.’”Spencer said as soon as the team realized Miller would be out, Barrett stepped up to the challenge of filling those shoes.“In the huddle from then on, when (Barrett) was in practice and doing stuff like that he was just making sure that he was keeping people going,” Spencer said. “If we were having a rough day, he was making sure that we’d stay up, that we’d stay motivated.”Meyer said one of the first things he noticed about Barrett was his competitive spirit. He said Barrett isn’t any louder as a leader than Miller, but added the’s “very confident.”Spencer said Miller and Barrett have different leadership qualities, but said both are good at what they do. He added Barrett is a strong motivator and he’s excited to see what happens going forward.OSU’s first game of the season is scheduled for Saturday against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more
