Photo of the Day: The WSJ’s all-dude tech conference

“This October, The Wall Street Journal’s senior editors will host the inaugural WSJDLive, a vibrant, international technology conference that brings together select global CEOs, leading thinkers and sought-after entrepreneurs – both established and emerging – to explore the most compelling tech opportunities around the world.”

And they will all be dudes

WSJD Live conference all male speakers

Why am I not surprised that a conference at the intersection of old media and new tech is so male-dominated?

    Maya,

    … And what should the organizers have done?

    The speakers seem to represent heavyweights in the industry. Until one of the heavy hitters is led by a woman, it is not surprising if all the speakers are men.

    Wrong target I’m afraid.
