Architectural Digest ces 2018

Where are all the women speakers at CES?

“Just days after women in Hollywood protested unequal representation, pay, and treatment of females in the entertainment and other industries at this year’s Golden Globes, organizers at CES, the world’s leading electronics and technology trade show, have bafflingly cited a “limited pool” as their reason for naming not a single female keynote speaker at the show.”

That’s according to Architectural Digest in a piece published earlier this month.

The article is a follow-up to an article in USA Today outlining why women need to be onstage at events like the Consumer Electronics Show.

Architectural Digest provided a list of eight women who could be potential keynotes at next year’s event. I’m honored to be included in that list, alongside people who have made amazing contributions to tech including former marketing manager at Apple Music (and currently CBO at Uber) Bozoma Saint John, SVP of retail at Apple, Angela Ahrendts, and Recode founder Kara Swisher.

For what it’s worth, you can find me as the keynote speaker this April at the International Drones Expo and Congress in Barcelona, Spain, this April.

    I am starting a drone training class for elementary school kids in my community. There are a lot of girls interested in joining . We need to start there. There are very few women today that I see flying drones. Can you help me get started?
