Without knowing more about the company or situation outside of what the article states I have to say I'm not surprised by this and I can't blame them considering the pressure placed on the private sector to force make their staff %X female. There's a reason you won't find teh case of a hospital creating fake male nurses and it's not because half the nursing staff is already male.

The Twitter user mentioned in the story, Gergly Orosz, goes on a bit of an unhinged tirade over this. What does it matter if a speaker is real or not if the attendees still get the material/info they expected? Why must it come from a female speaker vs a male speaker? This company made up these female speakers most likely b/c there was external pressure to since presumably they don't employee enough women or at least in the eyes of those who believe every cushy/office like job/industry must have %50 female staff or their sexists. They don't care that few if any women work in the industry of oil rigs, construction, cleaning sewers systems and teh like are nearly %100 male dominated it's just the jobs that have power and or are physically easier to do that they demand equal number of women. Women on avg aren't interested in careers in tech just as most men on avg aren't interested in nursing.
