We had a busy day in the studio today.  First up, Jacqui Chew of TEDx Peachtree joined us to share some background on TED and TEDx and shared some of this year’s plans for TEDx Peacthree.  The conference will be held in October and this year’s theme is Illuminate!.  They are still accepting speaker nominations and tickets will go on sale for the event in August.

Then we switched things up and recognized two amazing young women from Fayette County High School. Courtney Abrahims and Reagan Beavers participated in the Microsoft IT Academy at their school, went over and above taking as many Microsoft certifications as they could get their hands on and became THE tech resources for their school.  Amazing girls doing great work!  And as a bonus, after we chatted about their program and school, I got their thoughts on gender inequality at work and the pay gap we’ve all been talking about.
