    • Women Who Tech Case Study
      Identified the Problem: Tech conference circuit and mainstream media coverage
      focused on promoting men and ignored contributions by women in tech
      and their perspectives.
      Why is it a Problem? We create technology for the masses not for men. Technology
      must be discussed from diverse perspectives and leaders.
      The Solution: Create a virtual TeleSummit that showcased women breaking new
      ground in technology who use their tech savvy skills to transform the world
      and inspire change.

      from anywhere in the world.
      Cost Savings: Less expensive to produce then a conference.
      News Hook: First TeleSummit that focused on women in technology featuring
      accomplished women ranging from Arianna Huffington to RashmiSinha of
      Co-Founder of SlideShare & more.
