A few weeks ago Washingtonian magazine debuted their “Tech Titans” list. Here is a photo of the beginning of the spread:
Notice something? No women.
The full list — the 100 Most Powerful People in Technology — in the magazine this year included 27 women total.
To break it down further, there are only 20 women standing alone on the list, and seven within pairs, either with another woman or a male co-founder.
It’s not hard to find women for your lists, DC or otherwise. I promise.
Washington right now is a hub for technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Quite often, however, the publications or those that choose to cover the DC “tech scene” are leaving out half of the population of these movers and shakers: the women. I decided to round up a list of a sliver of some awesome women in tech that live and work in Washington.
Hire these women, tweet at these women, put them on your panels.
Washingtonian’s list is not Washington, it’s not DC Tech, and we can do better.
