A while back I along with a small group of women in the NYC Ruby community, participated in a conversation with the GoRuCo organizers about how to get more women attending and speaking at GoRuCo. It was a fruitful conversation and Francis wrote up a great post on the results of that conversation on the GoRuCo blog. I encourage you to read it.
This is a little behind the times due to a job change, but I was featured on the STEMinist blog back in April. Check it out. Note: I am no longer at that job.
