10 male speakers and 2 female speakers? That's the best you could do? :-/
Unfortunately, we couldn't land more female speakers despite our best efforts. We had a few last-minute drop offs from female speakers who we invited and we did the best we could to replace them, without neglecting the quality of the lineup. Organizing a conference is not easy, particularly a non-profit. We don't have a budget for speaker fees and there are more conferences showing up every day, so we can't get everyone we want. We do the best we can with what we have.
