Men and Women are Monetizing IP Communications

It just appears that the women are a little quieter. John Cirner, co-owner of a successful CLEC and Talkmotion.com, and his colleagues, Max Glucksmann  (DIDX integrator) and I had dinner one night during Astricon 2008. John and his partner Savoi asked why there were so few women presenting at voIP conferences and why not have a Women in voIP discussion panel at conferences. The panel could vary in types of expertise and background.

Several women were and are still being suggested on my personal blog and on Facebook, including:
Karen Campagna of Cisco
Jenny Callicott of Celtrek and Global Roaming
Debbie Grasso of Paetec
Dunia Campos of UltraCall
Catriona Harris. Lynda Starr, and Ilene Adler of Vantage Communications (blog)
Jaymie Scotto of Jaymie Scotto & Associates
Anne Coulomb of Avaya
Gayle Wolski who is key to publicity of VoiceCon
Allison Smith of the IVR Voice
Ilissa Miller of Jaymie Scotto & Associates
Connie Terwilliger of Voice Over Talent (expert on the older ISDN and voice)
Carrie Hartford of IPSMARX
Carolyn Schuk, the voIP Princess
Sheryl Breuker who knows everyone in the industry
Katherine Bagin of AT&T
Ginny Hutchinson of SpeakEasy
Helen Robison of Clarus Systems
