3.1 Discuss inviting Ashley Maria and Lea-Ann Berst to talk at the IETF 105 plenary about gender bias and their film "Pioneers in Skirts". (Barry)

I put this on the agenda topics for Prague, but if we want to discuss it here that will be just as good.

They gave the keynote talk at the M3AAWG meeting in February, and it's something I think we should have at the IETF as well. I was thinking that we could have them give the half-hour presentation (as they did at M3AAWG) + Q&A at the plenary, and perhaps have a later-evening option of seeing the 1-hour film (as they also did at M3AAWG, screening the not-quite-done film), which should be finished by IETF 105.

Here's the blurb from the M3AAWG keynote:

Workplace gender-bias persists in ways many of us don’t even realize. The first step is to be aware it happens…all the time, everywhere. The second step is to know what to do about it. They've spent 4 years filming character-driven stories where people confront and work to resolve this issue. Pioneers in Skirts is a character-driven social impact documentary addressing the gender-bias and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.

Editing hints

When adding a management issue to Section 3, use the following Wiki markup:

=== 3.1 Talk about the Weather ===

A sunny day, today!

Do not use any other Wiki markup or features on this page (above the line) -- this page will be parsed by the AD Dashboard tool in the future.

Use triple braces { and } on their own lines to ensure the text appears without formatting but in a grey box. Like so:
