InnovationWomen Kickstarter Aims to Empower Female Entrepreneurs
Look around the room at most conferences, seminars, trade shows and panels and things are bound to look a little lopsided gender-wise. And as a result, the discussions are disappointingly one-dimensional. Where are all the women? The fact is that there are plenty of noteworthy female entrepreneurs with valuable knowledge to offer at these events - they simply aren’t getting the exposure they deserve. That’s the issue that inspired a new Kickstarter, Innovation Women. This project, which is spearheaded by PR pro and Mass Innovation Nights founder Bobbie Carlton, seeks to give talented female tech professionals and entrepreneurs some more visibility. The idea is to make it easier for women to share their expertise, while also making it easier for event managers to find and secure quality female speakers.

Investing In Women In STEM: Because Girls Grow Up
America has a plumbing problem. They are investing heavily in attracting more women and girls to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) jobs, but all along their career pipeline, from the start of college until retirement, they seep out. You wouldn't try to fix a leak by pouring more fluid down a drain. Likewise, you can't presume that pushing more girls down STEM career paths will fix the endemic problems that cause women to leave.
