Wow this looked like such an awesome event!  I hope Project PAI will participate in more.  I love that there is a community for women in blockchain and crypto, we have to stick together!  There are far too few women in tech in general and this support and community within these sub-categories is so important!!

I completely agree with gnydam, I hate saying that women are minorities in technology since I am a women in tech but it is true! This creates an environment where women are comfortable to show their true colors in a male dominant field. Are there plans in the future to continue to involve more women in the PAI project/get their name out there?

Such a neat event, glad PAI is involved! I think it is so important to get more women involved in tech industries! Gender diversity within companies is one of the keys to success. I hope to see more events like this popping up near me.

What a cool event and I wish I could've been there to experience it! I agree with alaism's statement about gender diversity being extremely important within companies. I hope more events like this pop up in places near my university so that I along with other college woman and students can be more involved with and learn about tech industries.
