Q: What is a "fishbowl" discussion?
(From wikipedia) A fishbowl conversation is a form of dialog that can be used when discussing topics within large groups. Fishbowl conversations are sometimes also used in participatory events such as unconferences. The advantage of fishbowl is that it allows the entire group to participate in a conversation. Several people can join the discussion.
Q: I don't identify as female, may I come along?
A: Yes! The more the merrier, as long as you are the guest of a female attendee. Don't know anyone coming along? Bring a female friend or colleague to introduce to the group, we promise you'll have fun! 😄
