She's Such a Geek @Google Talks

The AtGoogleTalks channel at YouTube has videos of a number of presentations by authors, politicians, and women (who don't fall into the other categories) at Google. Not surprisingly, many of the talks are aimed at the relatively geeky Google audience.

As part of the Authors@Google series Annalee Newitz, Charlie Anders, Ellen Spertus, & Jenn Shreve discuss She's Such a Geek: Women Write About Science, Technology, and Other Nerdy Stuff. Newitz and Anders were the book's editors, Spertus (a Google employee) and Shreve were contributors.

On a more technical level is the talk by University of Washington psychology professor Sapna Cheryan on "her research into the problems women face entering and remaining it the fields of CS and engineering." Watch Cheryan's presentation. (Unfortunately, the quality of this video isn't very good.)
