Tech’s Gender Problem: Tonight at 7pm on City Visions, KALW 91.7 FM

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

Tune in on local public radio KALW 91.7 FM San Francisco or stream live.  You can also call or email with your questions.  Hope you can join the conversation!
