Girl Develop It is a national non-profit that provides technical education for women—and Sarah Kahn is a co-leader of Raleigh’s local chapter. In this video, she responds to a question she receives quite often: Why don’t more women attend technical conferences and other events?

"If you want more women to come to your event, make it friendly," Kahn tells her audience, just before offering fives ways to do so: make the event accessible, post (and enforce) a code of conduct, publicize via non-traditional communication platforms, build networks, and extend personal invitations.
