Some of the comments are the reason why we should have this summit. As a attendee at the event, I'm proud to be there. Also, there're some terrific men (Google employees) helped with the event, so it's not just women who were there.

It's not about who is better, the problem is that aren't much women in technology and some people think that women don't have skills for tecnology or science. People, woman or man should decided what they like to work.

It is not a problem. It is a symptom of most women choices.

1 – When apply for a job, I saw woman aplying and they weren't bad but they prefer a man. It's exactly the opposite, women are hired at a 2:1 ratio in STEM. (in the USA and Europe at least)2 – Bully when you are studying and are a minority.Actually, most women in STEM get an easier student life than the average men, a lot of men gladly do all the work for them and let them do the presentations."When where natural to see women in technology, maybe that change." Both genders have natural talents in different areas, you won't… Read more »

Ok, I will not do that kind of comparation (but I can say that in Brazil have many white men that play basketball) but by experience I saw two situations that make woman don't choose tecnology. 1 – When apply for a job, I saw woman aplying and they weren't bad but they prefer a man. 2 – Bully when you are studying and are a minority. You can think that isn't a excuse but imagine that from 100 people 30 women want study technology, but just 15 think it's worth all the trouble and with the difficult to find… Read more »

Actually, it's about forcing women into technology. If women in general wanted to go there it would already be a women dominated field.Equality doesn't mean parity. The lack of women in tech is just as comparable as the lack of white men in NBA.

A gathering of the companies most useless employees working to gain leverage through playing power politics rather than contributing to the strength of the company. Google is turning into a bureaucracy, expect to get eclipsed in the next 5-10 years.

AL Noob exactly. OP being a man hasn't been oppressed so he has no empathy with this situation.

What incentives? Last time I checked women are paid less, sexually harassed more, and taken less seriously than men. Having your own tech conference is no big deal. Any other rando want to say something?

He just said it, incentives, quotas, prizes, priority for women.

Robert Chrzanowski, the speech is that. The practice is to put barriers for men and incentives, quotas, prizes, priority for women.

This is not about assign blame. It is about removing barriers for Women to make it to conferences.

Arch Gloom Many reasons. Ask some woman you know. Sorry but you don't know what you are talking about. There are many situations that doens't motivate women to participate. If you are minority in and situations you will undestand. Did you know that some places prefer to hire man than women. So you gonna risk study and apply for a job that you have less chance or you going to study and work where you know that have less discrimination?

Almost every tech summit I've been to is nearly all male.

Someway always have, because I went in a event for women and only 15% were women. So… Maybe when were the oposite will have men in technology…

There should be equal amount of girls in tuff jobs like contruction jobs, mine workers, navy,border patrol, toilet cleaner other dirty jobs where men have to struggle. There should equality in these sectors also.

the konz Agree. I think whatever sex conference is fine, but only when we ignore the race and sex can we reach a better phase.

AI Noob ? you want to know why something equal means equality? :Di was just saying what is happening here. my personal opinion is that we should have more women in tech, because they think differently and bring different aspects into their work and we can benefit greatly from diversity (not just gender diversity), but i am not a big fan of those women conferences. i think, a well-mixed conference should be the norm.

they're rare in tech business. that's why this stuff is happening. if we had an equal amount of male and female workers in tech, this women-in-tech-conference stuff wouldn't be happening.

Google 2017: "Let's celebrate sexism by allowing women only to speak at and attend a conference."

There is nothing wrong in trying to inspire young girls to not to be afraid of pursuing their career in Tech. There is nothing wrong in organizing an woman-only-event like this to change the statistics that shows the gender gap in Tech today. Its not sexism, its empowerment and if you do not support the cause, you can decide who is who. 🙂
