I learned about a inspiring technology-related event happening in Pittsburgh on the evening of November 17 and wanted to share: Red Chair Pittsburgh.
Here’s some bits from the event’s website and Eventbrite page:
“RedChairPGH’s aim is to start the conversation and provide Pittsburgh area companies with resources to keep the conversation going in their organizations. Our target audience: Tech and HR executives, and mid-career men and women from Pittsburgh companies. Learn more @ redchairpgh.org.”
“The red chair is symbolic. When women and men “sit” to take a stand, they validate women in computing and IT and recognize them for the important role they play in creating future technology. The red chair gives all of us a constructive way to show our solidarity and invite others to participate. The bold red color grabs attention and encourages action. By “sitting together” we hold space for an honest conversation and create a platform for online and offline discussions about our challenges and hopes for the future.”
Their Eventbrite page states that only 40 tickets are left, so probably get your ticket soon if you are interested!
