Posted by Gina Rosenthal in VMworld | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment

Are you a techie woman headed to VMworld in August? We still have a couple of spaces left on the all-lady v0dgeball team!
What? You don’t know what v0dgeball is? Well here are the details:

      • WHAT:   A rules-based dodgeball tournament with an M.C. and referee.
      • WHEN:   Sunday August 28th 7pm-till its over
      • WHERE:   Sports Center of Las Vegas – 121 East Sunset Road, Las Vegas, NV
      • WHY:   To have some FUN! All proceeds go to the Wounded Warriors Charity
      • WHO: Right now the teams are:
        • EMC vSpecialists vSales
        • Juniper
        • NetApp
        • VMware
        • VCE
        • Dell
        • HP
        • Cisco
        • Tech Ladies

Caroline Orloff and I are leading the Tech Ladies team. Our concept is that the women know how to come together across vendor lines to collaborate and kick butt. If you are a techie gal, agree with our philosophy, and want to play v0dgeball, we have a couple of spots left. Please let me know, and we’ll add you. Similarly if you are a guy and you know a techie female co-worker who is coming to VMware please let her know about our team!

I will say, its pretty disappointing how few techie women are going to VMworld – from what I can find. Many of those I know about are either working on Sunday night, or they are on their company’s team. Please help prove me wrong…..maybe all the other women are just heads-down working too, but we need them on the team!

In the next couple weeks I’ll update you on our team. Unofficially we are the Cloud Bunnies…in a loving nod to @reillyusa. My daughter even designed a logo for us (still under review). If you have general questions about v0dgeball, @vcemonk is the mastermind – tweet him!
