Panel discussion with some of DC's Most Influential Women in Technology
There will be plenty of excitement and plenty of time for questions.This won't be a same old, same old rehash of why there aren't enough women in technology. Given the depth and breadth of talent on Fast Company's list, it's clear there are plenty of women doing important work in the tech space. Perhaps the question is: why aren't they better known?

Also on Fast Company's Most Influential list is Sheila Campbell, co-chair of the Federal Web Managers Council.
Yes, there will be cupcakes
Because we're doing a panel, this special edition of Sweets and Tweets will be held after hours at the very cool Hamiltonian Gallery on U Street. You can expect CUPCAKES from Baked and Wired, of course. We will also be serving wine. Maybe a cold rosé? We need to research what goes with cupcakes.
Sweets and Tweets features leading voices from DC's diverse technology community on the use of social media by the public and private sector, from the White House and federal agencies to local startups. The event series is produced and hosted by author and corporate social media consultant Debbie Weil.
