Women in Tech: Decoding Diversity in Silicon Valley and Beyond - Part 2
September 8, 2015
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Numbers game. Girls in the US are more likely than boys to study algebra and pre-calculus, yet college women earn only 18% of undergraduate degrees and less than 4% of doctorates in computer science and engineering. More disturbing, women fill only 25% of jobs in technology fields, and held just one-fifth of Fortune 250 CIO positions in 2012. “The need for more women in Silicon Valley is one reason that’s kept me here. I love a good fight,” says Game-Changing Women executive producer and SAP CLO Jenny Dearborn. What challenges await women entering and eager to succeed in tech? The experts speak. Rathna Kedilaya, TCS: “You must do the thing you think you cannot do” (Eleanor Roosevelt). Kinsey Ann Durham, GoSpotCheck: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined” (Henry David Thoreau). Nicole McCabe, SAP: “Culture eats strategy for lunch” (Peter Drucker). Join us for Women in Tech: Decoding Diversity in Silicon Valley and Beyond – Part 2.
