Speaking Topics

Discover a Community where Women are the Leaders

ThinQ.tv is for women and minorities in tech to be available to college students and early career STEMinists needing advice for navigating a field that marginalizes their contributions. Leadership is about lifting others to help you lift yourself. Let's motivate each other to change the world one Conversation at a time!

Coding While Female: Women-Founded Tech as a Means of Activism

Society teaches that women's gender role is to be household servant. Women are marginalized if they question this role, which leaves them out of many positions of leadership. When women participate in society in public and online, they are insulted, harassed, and their lives are threatened. Just having the guts to continue showing your face is an pursuit of activism. As a woman engineer, Dr. Lisa Schaefer was assaulted then fired, so instead of crawling back to another abusive employer, she founded ThinQ.tv. What has held you back from reaching for goals? We can work together to lead a culture where women's contributions are valued and women value themselves.
