Why there need to be more women leaders in tech / ep92
I’ve told very few people about this (and now I wonder why) but one of the long term goals is my business is to contribute to more girls learning technology and coding. I still believe there are not enough women leaders in tech and this is impacting the world at large.
In this episode, I go through a couple stories about why I think having more women in technology could change we perceive the world and some science to back it up.
Finally, I talk about some key steps I think need to happen so that this slowly shifts to a more equal environment of women and men leaders.
