So I am back from the Art of Leadership at HollyHock that was both a vacation and a bit of work. While I was away the announcement went out about a conference I agreed to speak at about identity in October – Office 2.0.
I didn’t really have time to do a bio while off retreating and I pointed them to my broad “who I am” page at kaliyasblogs. In reading this they picked up on a positional title I had and decided to list me with that just linking to Identity Woman under the blog link (without mentioning it in text). I find this odd because Ismael asked me to speak at the conference because I am Identity Woman.
From IT Redux: Kaliya’s participation should help us understand if there is a chance that we could get single sign-on for Office 2.0 in our lifetimes.
I would like to ask all the folks who blogged about the upcoming conference to list me as “Kaliya Hamlin aka Identity Woman, Network Director Planetwork”.
I find it interesting there is such a focus on that positional title to have legitimacy in this industry. I really think it is a disservice all around there are people who contribute a lot without positional ‘titles’ who deserve to be on stage some times perhaps more then those on stage who have ‘titles’. I hope we as a community can look at this bias towards ‘titles’ and reflect on the unique gifts and talents that are not being recognized because of it.
Think about it. If you can change my title listing on your blogs…thanks 🙂
