Encourage. Energize. Empower.


There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.  – Kofi Annan


In the above quote, Secretary Annan was referring to women in developing nations.  However, it’s just as apt a description of women in technology. 
Encourage. Energize. Empower.  Those are pretty tall orders. The YOU is implied. How about we imply instead that it’s WE? As working women with a voice,  WE need to support each other. WE need to encourage each other to try harder, to reach farther and to stand taller. WE need to energize each other when we’re tired, when we stumble and when we need to rest. 
Where should you start? How about right here?  Here is a great place to start. 
We’ll do it together.

Be a Role Model for Women in Tech through Blogging

Be a Role Model for Women in Tech through Blogging

Have you wanted to start giving back to our amazing SQL Community through writing, but are not sure how to start? Do you want to start blogging, but are anxious about criticisms? Are you unsure what to write about? I’ll walk through how to find topics to start writing about. I’ll go over tools to help you blog, and websites that you can start blogging about. We’ll discuss why it’s import to be a woman blogger, and I’ll share with you my experience over the last three years as a woman blogger in our community. Role models are needed for women in tech. They need to know that they are wanted in the community and that they have a voice. Be that role model through blogging.


Mickey Stuewe

Mickey Stuewe has been working with SQL Server since 6.5. That gives her over 20 years of experience. She has not only been a database developer, but also an application developer, even before Visual Studio existed. She is now thankful to be focusing on database design, t-SQL development, and query optimization. She also has a habit of enjoying SSIS and data warehouse design. She blogs regularly on her website mickeystuewe.com and contributes to sites such as SQL Server Central and SQL Server Pro. She enjoys presenting at PASS Summit, SQL Saturdays, User Groups and other events. When she is not immersed in SQL related activities, she enjoys action movies, art, reading, and laughing. She laughs loudly and often...just ask her children.
