“We need women to think of tech as a place for them”

Available on iTunes.

On this week’s Women Talk Tech podcast we talk to Holly Munn, Partner in BrandFreek Communications. Holly believes the traditional story line we tell about women leaving technology has to change. It’s not about having babies, it’s about being in work spaces that support the inclusion of diverse employees.

Listen as Marie and Holly debunk myths and stereotypes of working women as they send out a call to all women, we need you in tech! It’s not enough to have one or two woman leaders in tech – we need women to think of tech as a place for them. This episode is an empowering conversation for all tech leaders.

Marie mentions Melinda Gates’ report on Closing the Gender Gap in the Tech Sector. Get it here.
