Following the talk generated at the Women in Technology event at MCN2014, and continued at MW in Chicago, we propose to continue discussions about supporting women working in technology in the museum sector. Similar to last year, we are open to a variety of formats, and hope to be able to expand the discussion this year to include the subject of the acquisition of new skills. Specifically we would like to give an introduction to finding the right resources for learning about the semantic web, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and inviting interested museum professionals to take part in an online challenge that will take place between MNC2015 and MW2016.

Our goals for a women in technology event at MCN2015:
* Inspire- featured short talk by a prominent woman in the field
* Network- time to meet new people and build support system
* Challenge- opportunity to build skills and extend network of support
