Zeldman on Web Conference Gender Diversity

Zeldman, in a comment on Eric Meyer’s weblog:

I don’t share Eric’s view; I’m not neutral. I work with brilliant women at Happy Cog. Our Event Apart planning and production team is all female. I make an effort to recruit great female speakers.

For reasons I don’t pretend to understand, you find more women in visible leadership roles in editorial work, information architecture, usability, accessibility, and entrepreneurship. You find fewer women in leadership roles in the CSS/design niche that’s the core of our show.
