Want to find out how to throw a tech event, get women to participate along with the men, and make them feel good about the experience after it’s over? Lauren Bacon from Curious for a Living has seen it done and has a list of ideas that you can apply to your event.

I ‘ve worked in tech for fifteen years. In those fifteen years, women have remained a small minority in the sector, particularly in technical jobs (read: programmers/engineers/developers). A lot of people I know have bemoaned the numbers, and discussed various ways we might address the gender imbalance, but I haven’t seen a lot of success stories (There are some – don’t get me wrong. Just not a ton.)

A few weeks ago, though, something big and wonderful happened. And it is going to change the ratio.
