Ed & Ashley's 5 Minute Show

About

We started Ed & Ashley’s 5 Minute Show when we went to the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in 2008.  A couple days before the conference started, we decided that we should try to video blog the conference.

There’s a serious lack of visible female role models in technology, which is something we want to change!  Keeping women in technology visible will help to increase the number of girls interested in technology, which will increase the diversity of teams, which will increase the quality of the end product.  See? Everyone wins.

We’d love to have your support!  Here are few things you can do to help increase the number of women in technology:

If you’re a woman in technology, we’d love to connect with you!  Our interviews are short, casual and can cover a wide range of topics.  Please feel free to send us an email at donahue.edd (at) gmail (dot) com.

I absolutely love the concept behind this blog! I, for one, am not involved directly in a technology field, but my husband is (engineering counts, right?!). It made me sad to hear that there were only a handful of girls in his undergrad classes (mechanical engineering). Also, he did a graduate program in biomedical engineering at Hopkins and again, only a few girls were a part of it. Anyway, what you’re doing is great! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Unlucky about the mechanical engineering class, hopefully the school is trying out some initiatives to attract women to the discipline!
