Episode Description 
Jessica Lawrence is the executive director of NY Tech Meetup. Along with helping to showcase some of the city's most exciting new companies and digital projects every month, Lawrence is also helping to change the culture of the scene she is part of. Tech may not exactly be a boys club, but it does suffer from lopsided numbers when it comes to participation of the sexes. With women-only demo showcases, and a willingness to speak out against sexist remarks, Lawrence's daily work is helping to make New York's tech scene more diverse.
