Women in Tech: Is Climate Change Coming?
It has been approximately a year since the Uber scandal uncovered a culture of sexual harassment and gender bias in the tech community. Silicon Valley still faces a dearth of female founders and women are still underrepresented at executive levels in tech companies and law firms. But is the outlook showing signs of improvement? What steps are tech companies taking to reduce gender bias and discrimination? How can the legal community contribute to increased diversity? This session will examine the current climate and highlight the strides the tech community is making to improve the future of women in tech.
