Inside The Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech From Colleges To The Board Room
Interview with Samantha Walravens Co-Author of Geek Girl Rising: Inside the Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech
There’s been a lot of debate and controversy around the lack of women and minorities being represented in tech companies from entry-level to the C-suite and board room.
However, what isn’t showcased is how there is sisterhood within tech, where women are helping each other out, and enacting change at every level from schools to the board room.
To talk about how women are investing and encouraging each other, I’ve invited Samantha Walravens who is the co-author of the new book Geek Girl Rising: Inside the Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech.
If you’re a woman, minority, or male ally you’ll learn from Samantha how:
- Women like Maria Klawe at Harvey Mudd have tripled the number of women graduating with Computer Science degrees
- Women are connecting female founders to female angel investors and influencers to grow their startups
- Corporations are changing and disrupting the dynamics of the boardroom
