Geek Girl Meetup, one of the gender equality champions on GETBlog’s list.

Swedish tech news site Ny Teknik is starting a blog about gender equality in technology. The blog, which has chosen the somewhat unfortunate hashtag #GETBlog, is written by Alice Marshall and is sponsored by Google. According to Google their dream scenario is to copy this initiative to other countries.

The first blog post is a list of the “gender equality champions” in Sweden.

Is this already another sign of change in the industry, like the certifications I wrote about in my previous post? At least I hope that the blog will give me more news and tips about interesting initiatives and people.

You can find the #GETBlog at equality.nyteknik.se.
