Where will you find women speakers in the tech and creative industries?

Tech conference after tech conference, creative event after creative event, you will hear the lament, ‘But where are the women speakers? Why is the panel made up of men?”

As a women in tech and a speaker at tech and creative events, I can’t help but notice that I’m often the only female representin’ on the panel!

So, where are the women speakers in the tech and creative industries?

They are here!

 

Well, some of them are. Nearly 500 in fact. And the numbers are growing.

Articulate is a network created by Mudlark and Caper which acts as a powerhouse of female speakers. It aims to change the ratio of male:female speakers at events.

Not only will it have a public speaker directory this year (I signed up over a year ago), it will also be encouraging events, conferences and of course, their organisers to get more women speakers involved.

Are you interested?

Add yourself to the directory of talented female speakers!

Sign up for the Articulate newsletter and keep up to date with all the latest news and developments!

Follow @articul8te on twitter  and tell your female friends and colleagues.

If you are running a tech and/or creative event and you want to up the female speaker ratio, let Articulate know.

The next time you hear someone say, “But where are the women speakers”, you know where to send them! 🙂
