Women made up seven percent of the 550 attendees at last year’s Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference, according to Tracey Welson-Rossman. That’s too low, she said.

Welson-Rossman is the Chief Marketing Officer at Chariot Solutions, the Fort Washington-based company that hosts ETE. She’s also the founder of TechGirlz, a nonprofit that aims to get more girls interested in technology.
