“Next 24 Hours of PASS on March 15-16 2011, celebrating Women’s History Month with 24 female speakers!”
Thus goes the announcement on the SQLPASS homepage. This means that we’d like you – yes, YOU madam! – to consider submitting an abstract to speak. Off the top of my head, I can think of maybe a dozen women that I suspect will jump in the game, and I can’t wait to see who else will submit.
If you have an abstract in mind or have suggestions for specific speakers or topics, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstract submission (max 250 words with a 125 word bio) is January 14.
So let’s talk: If you’re a woman who is new to speaking, or you’ve just been thinking about it and would like a sounding board, contact me (or another speaker). We’d like to help, and we definitely want you to submit for 24HOP 2011!
