Last year's WiTT meeting featuring talks from the first-ever TEDWomen event was one of our most popular, so we're repeating it this year. At our 18 June 2012 meeting, we will screen and discuss selected presentations from TED, TED Global, and TEDx events that look at how women (and some men) use, influence, and create technology and technology-based solutions.
For a change of pace, the meeting will be in the Charlotte Street Hotel's private screening room.
Presentations may include:
Gayle Tzemach Lemmon: Women entrepreneurs, example not exception
Jen Pahlka: Coding for America
Regina Dugan: From mach-20 glider to humming bird drone
Rebecca MacKinnon: Let's take back the Internet!
The evening will run as follows:
18:00: Networking and welcome drinks
18:45: Event commences (please note the earlier start time, to give us time to screen more presentations)
20:30: Informal networking
We look forward to seeing you on June 18th!
