Wow, what a great event. I can’t say enough good things about the BZ Media crew and the great conference that I have been attending for the last 3 days. I was very pleased to hostess a Women in SharePoint lunch at the San Francisco 2012 version of SPTechCon.
We had a great time getting to know one another and talking about issues that we face as females in a predominantly male industry. I must say though, that at SPTechCon you wouldn’t know that SharePoint is still a 2/3 male dominated industry.
I want to take this time to thank all of the BZ Media crew, especially David Rubenstein for providing us with a perfect medium for networking and socializing at their conference. And they did a wonderful job of promoting the event.
I must say it was a tad bit disconcerting when I arrived and checked in for the conference to find my face on the Lunch Tickets for Tuesday’s lunch as well as on the program guide highlights of events. It was some great awareness for the Women in SharePoint group that is so near and dear to my heart.
Now for the important part. I encourage the ladies who attended the lunch to sign up and get involved in Women in SharePoint. We are always on the lookout for new groups to start up under new leadership wherever there are people wanting to meet. All you have to do is let us know you are interested and we will help you get started.
It is exciting to me to see the groups starting, growing and having success. In fact the Women in SharePoint in DC are hosting their first major Career Building Seminar this Thursday.
The board is certainly excited to see more and more groups forming and events happening around the country for Women in SharePoint!
