The annual NSCAA Convention is less than a week away and the number of women presenting continues to grow! The first NSCAA Convention I attended was in Philadelphia in 1996. While I can no longer recall many of the session topics one thing that stands out was that as a woman, I was in the distinct minority. There were only a handful of female presenters and if you wanted a quiet place to regroup the women’s restroom was almost always empty.
In looking at this year’s list of presenters it is clear that, while men still make up the majority both of presenters and attendees there number of women is growing. Indeed if on Friday you want to attend only sessions with female presenters and panelists you could.
Below is a composite schedule of all sessions featuring female presenters or panelists. If there are any I have missed message me @sdshick. See you in LA!
