In less than three weeks I will be at the PDC! On the first day, I'll be a panelist at the Women in Technology panel. If you've been to one of these at TechEd, all I can say is PDC isn't TechEd. Things will be a little different this time. Here's the abstract that's going in the guide:

This panel will cover how women have used their intelligence and creativity to excel in the software industry.  Hear from women IT professionals who are successful in a male-dominated industry.  Learn, connect, and engage at this networking panel, where your questions drive the agenda, and hear tips and tricks on how to succeed as a woman developer or technical professional in the computer sciences and technology marketing.  Both men and women are invited to join in the conversation, and learn from each other about how to grow diversity in the IT industry.

One thing that will be the same is the quality of the panelists. I'm not going to brag about myself, but let me tell you the other panelists are fantastic: Angela Mills (Microsoft), Anne Thomas Manes (Burton Group), Dee Dee Walsh (Microsoft), Michele Leroux Bustamente (IDesign Inc.), Shoshanna Budzianowski (Microsoft) and our moderator, Esther Schindler (Ziff-Davis). I've been lucky enough to watch most of them in action before and you're sure to pick up valuable career insight.

And in case that sentence from the abstract didn't quite click the first time, let me paste it again: Both men and women are invited to join in the conversation. See you there!

Sorry I can't be there, the BoF that Julia held on the same topic in Orlando was very interesting....

Be sure you all have a drink for me during the event!

Thanks for the invitation. There is one thing I don't understand... why do they made a slight delimitation between women and men in technology field. I hope this isn't a wrong approach but I think we should find new ways to enhance the current achievements in technology field.

I think we didn't need to dicuss that issue. We should discuss team members and team includes all genders, and in to day's worlds world both are equall.
