Spun out of a roundtable on sustaining a growth of female technologists, Baltimore’s first Women/InTech conference brought out some 50 women for an entry point into the technology community during Baltimore Innovation Week last month.
The focus was not to offer a comprehensive lesson in any of the three meaty subjects but instead to offer a starting point for women who might otherwise be reluctant to attend a technology event that might be expected to be male dominated. Don’t finish your knowledge, but begin it, as an entry point was offered and most attendees pointed their peers to existing programming, events and organizations that cater to the broader technology community.
The event was organized by a committee of women, including Ad.com’s Paris Pittman, Kate Bladow, Amy Rubino, Stephanie Dickard, VIM Interactive’s Sarah Jones, Haya Gaviola, Josie Keller, Startup Maryland co-chair Julie Lenzer-Kirk, Paulina Nguyen and, full disclosure, Corinne Warnshuis of Technical.ly Baltimore. The event was hosted at the Tide Point headquarters of Advertising.com.
