Mayor Gray gives misogynistic speech at DCWeek

Jen Consalvo, COO, and Frank Gruber, CEO of TechCocktail, and Peter Corbett of iStrategyLabs introduce the keynote speakers for DCWeek.

My colleague Cherie LeJeune, in her 60’s, often mentions that all the tech events we attend are mostly attended by children (20-somethings). Looks like we found their birthday party. 

DC Mayor Vincent Gray gave the welcome address, honoring Peter and Frank twice, totally ignoring Jen both times. I don’t think it was personal toward Jen, rather it was the norm of how women are treated in tech professions.
