#WomenInTech get the hashtag treatment

Molly Wood Mar 4, 2013

We’re looking at a question that Marketplace Tech will visit regularly: Who is tech? This week we’re talking with women in the tech world, learning about the issues they face and the changing landscape of the tech workplace. 

Of course, we’re far from the first people to start this conversation. Last November, the hashtag #1reasonwhy started an international conversation on Twitter about sexism in the video game industry. Soon after, today’s guest on our show, Rhianna Pratchett, a veteran video game writer who has just finished an overhaul of “Tomb Raider”, started the hashtag #1reasontobe. And if you’re looking for even more inspiration, check out hashtag #1reasonmentors.

Do you work in the tech world? If so, could you distill the issues facing women in your industry into one tweet or one hashtag? Tell us in a comment below. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
