Women and SMW12: Where Can You Find Them?



Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Women represent 55 percent of Facebook and Twitter users, and the average social gamer on sites like Zynga is a 43-year-old woman. Yet, overall female participation in leadership is lower by far. So a focus on female participation is important, and not just to understand social media’s demographics.

It’s a frequent topic in both media and conferences. More and more, we’re seeing leaders step up to highlight the women doing incredible things in this area. So, much so that this summer, Deanna Zandt and Andrew Rasiej even issued a challenge, #One4One, asking leaders to honor someone different than themselves, be that based on gender, race or sexual orientation.

In honor of this, we want to highlight events geared more toward fellow women, gender issues, or highlighting prominent female leaders- everything from advice from female founders to how tech is changing our beauty habits to using technology to understand serious issues, like miscarriage.
