HIRE WOMEN: AN AGILE FRAMEWORK FOR HIRING AND RETAINING WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY, BY DEBBIE MADDEN
We have an ongoing gender diversity problem in tech that’s getting worse.
Despite the fact that women outnumber men both in the US population and on college campuses, they hold only 10%-20% of tech jobs at Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter, 25% of tech jobs overall, only 6% of S&P 500 CEO slots, and secure only 2% of Venture Capital funding. A full 43% of the 150 highest-earning public companies in Silicon Valley have no female executive officers at all.
While there is no magic bullet, there is a solution. There’s something you can do. Get this book to learn a specific, concrete, and proven process to turn this situation around at your organization.
