Global Conference 2018

Beyond "Brotopia": Leaders Challenging the Boys' Club of Silicon Valley

In her bestseller, journalist Emily Chang dubs Silicon Valley "Brotopia," a place where men hold all the cards and make all the rules. Vastly outnumbered, women face workplaces rife with discrimination and are often discouraged or disinterested in entering these environments at all. At a time when women remain significantly underrepresented in STEM fields, we risk suppressing yet another generation of women's inventions, investments, and innovations. With corporate reputations starting to impact bottom lines, there is an opportunity to repair these problematic workplace cultures. Tech industry leaders will discuss how they are challenging the boys' club reputation of the Valley and invigorating their companies by creating diverse and inclusive office environments.
