Bradley Holt:
The Northeast PHP Conference Wants More Women Speakers
April 10, 2013 @ 12:19:51

in this new post to his site, Bradley Holt - an organizer of the Northeast PHP Conference - looks at one of the difficult struggles for events right now...getting more women to submit to speak at conferences.

We opened up the call for papers for the Northeast PHP Conference about a week ago. Guessing by the names, it appears that we have a very low number of women who have submitted talks.

He includes some quotes from this post by Courtney Stanton about how she was able to get such a high female submission rate for her event. The basic idea was to offer "consulting" services on their ideas and drafts of presentations to help encourage and bolster their confidence in the event. Bradley is offering to do the same for this year's conference, for anyone - not just women.

The Northeast PHP Conference is being held in Cambridge, Massachusetts August 16th through 18th
