The guest: Lauren Malhoit, host of the Adapting IT Podcast, vExpert, Systems Implementation Engineer, and all round smart person. The topic: Is Social Media the Great Equalizer for Women in Tech? “Equalizer” might not be quite the right word — as Amy says in the first two minutes of the podcast, “We feel plenty equal, but I don’t know if we’re represented the same.” Another podcast recorded LIVE at VMworld 2013 in San Francisco!
