An interesting documentary series about women in technology will be released next month. The director of this series will be the veteran Jennifer Cloer. She is the former vice-president of communications of the Linux Foundation and current founder and principal consultant of reTHINKit PR. The docuseries is called Chasing Grace and HenTech invite everyone to follow it because we can see interesting things about women who are a milestone in the technological world.
Chasing Grace from Jennifer Cloer will be produced by Wicked Films. Jennifer Cloer is co-founder of Wicked Films and she has already some sponsors like Intel to support the project. The strengthening of this type of initiative is important, since thanks to this documentary effort, it will introduce us to a succession of stories about women’s efforts to achieve equality within a world that still seems to be dominated by men, and that is the one of the technology. The first installment of this series (consisting of 6 episodes in total) will focus on a documentary called Eighty Twenty, exploring the financial and emotional impact for life that may have the wage gap between women and men in technology careers. The protagonists will be the women whose resilience has led them to finally achieve deserved success.
Not all the documentaries of the six planned to complete Chasing Grace will focus on that same theme. The rest will take another thread always related to the technological world and women with a desire for opportunities to innovate, build and manage projects. Some interesting topics that we will find will be online harassment, female entrepreneurship, equitable access to the best jobs, the decision to leave or stay in technology and the role of male allies.
As Cloer said, “This is not about drawing negative conclusions or exposing bad business practices. It’s about not avoiding adversity. Let’s talk about the negative but move quickly towards the path to follow.”
