Conference

I spent yesterday and today at a work-related conference. One thing I find myself doing is counting the number of women at meetings and it was particularly low at this event. It’s hard to tell because not everyone was at all sessions, but it was definitely under 10%. Sigh.

Also, this was the sort of thing which has a token talk by a congresscritter. I won’t give specifics since it was a non-attribution event, but he offended me by giving a very partisan talk and by not using the correct name for the other party. In addition, aside from one slide his staff had prepared, almost none of his talk was relevant to the subject of the conference.
