SXSW 2013 — Women in tech, where are the men?

DJ Patil, John Battelle and Clay Shirky — what do they all have in common?

All three are smart men who advocate for women in tech.

In March, I put together an all-star lineup at SXSW to talk about the importance of women mentoring women and the role it plays in building a stronger and more inclusive community.

In 2013, we are going to look at the critical role men can and should play in advocating for women.

For me, the inspiration for this panel comes from something my mother often says — “the door to power opens from the inside.”

SXSW 2013 panel discussion will examine the impact of men advocating for women and the importance of empowering such partnerships to build a better tech community.

Engage, contribute and participate, the future of our industry depends on it.
