An article in the June 2014 issue of Convene Magazine, What Holds Us Back: 3 Women Tech Pioneers on How to Take the Reins, explores what it means to be a leader in the meetings and conventions space. It profiles three women who have founded their own companies in event technology, one of the few areas in the industry that tends to be male-dominated.

Midori Connolly, principal at AVGirl Productions, thinks fewer women make technology a career focus because “it ties into that idea that little girls don’t do math and little girls don’t do science, the message we grew up with.” But Midori and the other two women interviewed — Liz King, CEO of Liz King Events, and Jenise Fryatt, content marketing strategist for Smarter Shift — have made it against the odds.
