"There Aren't Enough Qualified Women Speakers"

#PresentHER

Four years ago, Stefanie Grieser ran the first-ever Call to Action Conference. She invited four women — two of which spoke on a panel. The other seven were — you guessed it — white males. Her reason was an all-too familiar one:  “There aren’t enough qualified female speakers.” But what it really came down to was, we just weren’t trying hard enough.

I wasn’t asking my network for recommendations. I wasn’t doing enough research. I wasn’t making the extra effort required to widen the pool of speakers. I wasn’t committed to gender diversity.

By digging a little deeper and expanding your search a little wider, you can discover fresh up-and-coming talent with new perspectives, new things to teach.

We're seven driven females who work in MarTech and want to sponsor others to be equally represented in marketing and technology conferences.

PresentHER is a passion project kicked off by seven female marketing professionals. Our goal is to encourage gender diversity at marketing conferences by providing event organizers with a directory of seasoned and aspiring female marketers as well as actionable strategies to achieving gender parity at their next event.
