I am excited to be a charter member of the @EdTechWomen's group founded by Noodler, Sehreen Noor Ali. The group first met at SXSW in Austin (I wasn't there, but heard it was epic!) and the second meeting was held at General Assembly. Most recently, group member Lisa Jiang (new Google+ for Education lead!), offered-up Google's NY offices and specifically the Google cafeteria for an Edtech Women's breakfast!

The previous meeting was more structured (almost a "speed dating" approach) and this most recent breakfast was more informal, with members talking about their work and their needs in the space. The next meeting will be at PolicyMic for a $20 marketing-focused writing workshop! I will keep you updated!

Here are some pics from the breakfast:
