by Thursday Bram on July 26, 2012

Getting more women up on stage at conferences, especially in tech fields, is important. We can all agree on that. But recently, I read a post that has got me thinking about what really needs to happen to make it happen. I’m not going to link to that post, because it’s a bit incendiary — [...]
