Are you talking about women in tech with your community? Do you read the continued articles about the lack of women leaders in tech companies and tech positions and just shake your head or are you leading the discussion for change?
I’ve been in tech for many years and for most of those years I was the only woman (or one of few women) in my position, working with men to advance our company goals and achieve success. I experienced the challenges that women in tech face first hand.
Over the last several years my conversations have expanded from one with a few women in my inner circle, to more than 2,500 women that are part of Tech Savvy Women. Most recently those conversations are including male leaders in corporations who have come to understand the value of having a diverse leadership team and seek ways to attract and retain women in tech.
For those who say that conversation doesn’t matter or that one person can’t make a difference, I am hear to dispel that myth.
Leading the discussions for everyday women in tech has brought me in front of Fortune 100 company leaders, provided opportunities to lead panel discussions, provide keynote addresses, win five awards for my latest book Accelerate Your Impact and write articles for such publications as Forbes and Smart Business.
In the coming weeks I will be Maureen Metcaff’s guest on Voice America talking about Attracting and Retaining Women in Tech. as well as the cover story for People Matters magazine talking about WOMEN LEADERS IN THE AGE OF DISRUPTION.
It all started with having a discussions about the need to increase the number of women in tech. Two people talking, adding two more, and before you know it – the whole world is talking about the importance of focusing on attracting and retaining women in tech.
