    Looking forward to this event. I would be more than happy to join in on a panel. I'm new in the field of tech and even more of a rookie as a manager in the corporate world. I also have a nine year old daughter. We are learning to code together.

    Working in a large corporate environment I can also speak to keeping an entrepreneurial spirit alive. I'll reach out to some other women for their availability for tech talks. How many more are you looking for? @John - LOVE your idea. With the global launch of the Twin Cities Geekettes we've been discussing being a parent. I'm a single mother and Katie Tierney from BMC will be one of our speakers at our launch party and she's a mother of four :)

    This might not be at all what you are looking for, but I had an idea I thought I'd volunteer. As an engineer/geek father of a 5 and 3 year old girl, I'd be happy to talk about my approach to helping them to become curious and creative women down the road? It'd basically be my experiences and observations with things like Goldiblocks, Robot Turtles, and our recently acquired 600+ piece Erector set.

    I'd really enjoy feedback from the group and any women present, and think it could bring about some good discussion among other parents.

    Encouraging current developers is huge, and another piece of the the challenge is trying to allow the future women developers/engineers of the world to feel free to pursue that path.

    If you'd like speakers to be current women developers, no worries at all if I missed the mark above! As an alternative, I'd be love to listen to *current* females in a tech role talk about what helped them choose that path so I can be a better parent :)
