I observed young female students crowding the keynote speakers on several occasions, asking questions & deep in discussion. The enthusiasm was palpable.
Do we need this?
Take a closer look during Q&As.
Are the men or women more outspoken?
If you're a woman and invited to participate, don't be modest, don't turn down the invite. You're not doing it for yourself. it's for the community.
Don't worry about me, I'm going to do just fine. 👍
Still going to be alright. 🤘
