Starting A Revolution: Women in Tech : In the old days, starting a revolution required armed guerillas, violent protest … and “fast” meant 5-10 years. Today, a tweet or OpEd can circumvent the globe in seconds, instantly catalyzing a group of like-minded people to demand change. While today’s revolution employs thoroughly modern means, it exhibits classic features as well. Using Women in Tech as a case study, we’ll explore how to use technology and new media to go from cause to full-fledged revolution, resulting in measurable change. No matter the cause, the steps are the same: 1) voice the problem, 2) build coalitions of support, 3) grow awareness for the cause and 4) develop groups to take action. We’ll have with us the key players who tipped the scales, to talk about what happened and what’s to come.

In this session, some of the industry's most strategic investment visionaries -- that just so happen to be members of the fairer sex -- share their views on the online, social media, and mobile landscapes, the trends that are shaping these worlds, and where they are investing.
