Allyson Kapin, founder of Women Who Tech, has proposed a panel for next year's SXSW Interactive that has Neil French potential. "Bumpin' Up: Has the Glass Ceiling Ever Smacked You in the Butt?" will touch on such topics as:
- What tools and strategies should women be use to promote themselves and brand themselves as experts in their field?
- Chicks & Porn: Which one do tech conferences really need and why?
- How do you decide how far you want to go in your career? Is up, up the ladder, the right path for every woman?
- How do you address situations when your boss or client takes your male tech colleagues opinions more seriously than your opinions?
The panel will feature "some of the most influential women in tech and social media."
Sounds like a keeper. I imagine a panel like this would be a first at this conference. With more women joining the digital workforce, it's a conversation worth having.
