What do women want at NASA events?
What Do Women Want At Hackathons? NASA Has A List
http://www.fastcompany.com/3059036/most-...has-a-list

Quote:At last year's hackathon in Toronto, for instance, there were two sections: one for students and one for adults. Girls made up at least half of the student participants. "The middle school girls looked like honey bees, running around in little packs to learn about the technology," she says. "But in the main hacking area, it was all guys. I wanted to know what happens that makes them lose their curiosity and enthusiasm."

"We wanted to find the key levers that would allow women to start pouring in,"

Prepare to be shocked by how totally unpredictable women are:

Quote:WOMEN WANT SAFE SPACES
What they cared about most was being able to explore these topics in a space that felt friendly and supportive. "They are looking for signals that they will be in a safe space where they feel like they belong,"

Women want to be insulated from the consequences of their actions.

Quote:WOMEN WANT TO PREPARE
women who are brave enough to attend these events want to go a day early to get the lay of the land and perhaps form a team in advance. They want to become more comfortable with the physical space where the hackathon will take place and learn as much as possible about the topics. "When the hackathon then becomes flooded with men, they feel ready for it," she says.

Women need longer than men to achieve the same results.

Quote:WOMEN WANT CHILDCARE
While men described hacking as something that they did in their spare time, the research showed that many women often had many other family responsibilities and couldn't just attend a hackathon for fun.

See point 1. Actions have consequences. Also, they're probably spending all their spare time collecting cat pictures on pinterest.

Quote:WOMEN WANT TO CONTRIBUTE
men are more likely to participate because they are interested in space; they simply show up with ideas. Women, on the other hand, need to feel like they have the appropriate battery of skills to contribute. With this knowledge, Beck has found it helpful to make it clear that each team needs strong storytellers

Women want to get involved with NASA so they can tell a story with themselves in the middle. Men just think that space is fucking awesome.

Mindblown

If a person goes to NASA and demands safe space then they're in for a rude awakening when this thing called...space bites them in the ass.

That's why we have to put up with EXTREME OH&S and Nanny state bullshit!!! At heart, women have to feel safe 24/7. They are paranoid beings!

I've been saying this shit for years now where women are brainwashed to focus on a career to become corporate slaves over family. Thanks for the evidence!!

Early this year I was taking a piss in a company that had 80% women and I noticed this sign next to the basin.
