Women in Blockchain Event

On September 6, 2016, in San Francisco, these Women in Blockchain meetup will highlight cryptocurrency exchanges.

Many different niches and industries have their own gender gaps. However, the chasm of that gap isn’t as pronounced as it is within the tech industry.

In a 2014 study, Microsoft holds 29.1 percent of women in their workforce but only 16.6 percent are in a technical position. Twitter states that they only have 10 percent of women in tech jobs, and Google has a low 17 percent.

The numbers present a staggering reality. Looking at the percentage of women in the entirety of the workforce shows a large 58.7 percent. With women comprising most of the workforce, it’s a surprise that there aren’t more women involved in tech. Theories of gender biases tend to be the most popular reasoning behind the wholly disproportionate percentage. Theories aside, there are still a good amount of successful women making headway within the tech field. A few of those notable women are Ayako Miyaguchi, Director of the Kraken exchange for Japan, and Kristen Stone, Head of Partnerships at Coinbase.

On Tuesday, September 6, 2016, in San Francisco, these women will lead a meetup discussion called Women in Blockchain. At the event, they will discuss cryptocurrency exchanges and more.

Located at the Digital Garage, 717 Market Street, San Francisco CA, they welcome others to help educate and promote more women within the tech industry.
