Hi all,

Things are being harder than expected, so my apologies that I'm behind
regarding emails.

I read that there will be a decision today/tomorrow about the logo and
thought I would give my two cents :)

Thinking from a long term perspective, and considering the history of the
event and smaller celebrations, I believe that we have two challenges to

   - People seeing the event as only for women
   - Incorporating diversity other than gender in the event

Thus, I would really prefer to have a professional designer who can come up
with a logo that signals this event empowers women but invites people of
all genders (see the Spanish celebration example [1]). For the second
challenge, I'm attaching an image.

I would go with (a better version of) something like a hand shake with each
hand of a different color, perhaps using the ACM logo colors, and then
adding a local element each year. I think having a recognizable logo really
pays off!
