Microsoft Supports Women's Event at TechReady

This is a nice follow up to the Detroit Automotive Show blog post. A week ago Microsoft held it's tech ready event which reached almost 5000 in attendees. Approximately 20% of the attendees were women. They hosted a special event for the women attendees. Becky Bertram, from Microsoft Consultants, comments on the event on her blog.

Again, I'd like to push the agenda that for any large scale forums or events that runs for a few days consider hosting a women's event to facilitate networking. It must seem counter-intuitive at times to men to consider women actually need formal networking events to make connections when women are considered so social in nature but it is absolutely true.
