Confronting Tech's Gender Problem

Apr 9, 2017


City Visions host Ethan Elkind speaks with guests about the struggles faced by women in the technology sector.  

Why does this industry, which has led the charge in so many other arenas, lag behind when it comes to hiring, compensating and advancing women. What efforts are tech companies making to open their doors to more women, and will they prove effective? Where they lead, will other industries follow?  

Guests:

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.
