Also digging Sarah’s post on her blog, which quotes a dude telling Julia Allison to lose weight (ROFL) and gets into some of the girl power vibe of younger women in tech.
I’m also working on a column for the upcoming new web mag BitchBuzz, edited by Miz Cate Sevilla, that gets into some of the disconnects around what is pro-woman behavior in the Valley(yes, talking with Sarah helped prompt that).
So here’s the question:
- What can women in the Valley do to help one another further?
- How do we smooth out some of the disconnects about what feels appropriate in style and presentation (or agree to give one another more supportive space)?
- If you’re a women working in tech, how do you want other women to help you?
To put it another way, I’m a big supporter of both BlogHer and She’s Geeky, and a big fan of Women Who Tech and Women 2.0/Bay area Girl Geeks dinner–but how do we bring all these things together? What’s the opportunity to further given one another collegiality, mentoring, suppport?
If we had a new girls network, what would you want it to look like?
