The tech industry is dominant in the Bay Area. Its products and services have already changed so much of our lives on a daily basis, while its growth has changed the commuting and physical landscape of the region.
Yet the industry has lagged on key markers of equality, particularly gender equity.
Tonight at 7pm on City Visions, I’ll moderate a panel asking about the efforts tech companies are making to open their doors to more women. Will these measures prove effective? And where they lead, will other industries follow?
My guests will include:
Elizabeth Ames, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Alliances and Programs at the Anita Borg Institute
Carissa Romero, Partner at Paradigm, a strategy firm taking a data-driven approach to helping companies to build stronger, more diverse and inclusive organizations
Stephanie Lampkin, Founder and CEO of Blendoor with an engineering degree from Stanford and an MBA from MIT
