Podcast about gender awareness @ the 2007 Rails Conference

Devchix, one of the most respected blogs written by women in software and open-source development, talk about why it is important to get more women involved in the community and conferences on a Ruby on Rails podcast. Here.

It's a podcast but you can just listen to it online, too. The conversation is interesting, covering topics such as:

-Why should anyone care if there aren't many women in the computer community?

-Why is a collective voice important?

-Their experiences as women in technology in their workplace, conferences, and the technology community at large.

-Are women's only groups discriminatory? How do you balance between creating a safe space for women while also incorporating men who are supportive of women in technology?

You can contact for more info.
