Description

Technology's effect on our society and culture continues to grow, yet only 18 percent of those equipped to design our future—and benefit from these high-paying jobs—are women. What effect does this gap have on our products, economy, and future? Listen to some of the most powerful women in tech talk about the gender gap and how we can work together to make change.

This overview video provides insights and advice from some of the most successful and powerful Silicon Valley women in tech about the state of the field and how we can work together to make it better. For instance, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg discusses the gender pay gap, Daphne Koller, founder of Coursera, makes a plea for men to recognize women’s contributions in meetings, and long-time NetApp senior vice president of software systems Helen Bradley talks about how the numbers of women she was able to recruit diminished drastically from the mid-’80s to the ‘90s.
