Thought I’d share my disappointment with you. I follow your work closely and am a big supporter!
I just graduated University last year with 27k in debt. I believe networking and attending conferences is a great way for young graduates to get out into the market and advance one’s career. I was looking at the Web Summit event which is held in Lisbon this year, which has a ticket price of 850 Euros, or 85 Euros if you happen to be a woman – here. Last year they let women in for free, but most of the ones who claimed a free ticket didn’t go, so this year they’re giving them a 90% discount.
How is this in any way fair? I fail to see any logic in this differential pricing…
Thanks for your work.
All the best,
Maybe the men wishing to attend the event should claim they self-indentify as women?
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
