Hump Day Exchange: Womansplaining
According to the National Science Foundation, women make up half of the U.S. college-educated workforce, but only 29% of the science and engineering workforce. While many great first computer scientists were women, we still have not closed the gap between genders. The conversations of sexism and sexual harassment in the workplace, and how to solve these large problems, are becoming more of a hot-topic with recent viral articles about companies like Uber.
To explore this topic, we brought in Jen Bonnett, Director and General Manager of ATDC, Wei-Chun Tai, partner at Mosely Ventures, and Annie Harrison Elliott, playwright of Empty Rooms, which will be performed in the Garage. Listen to what these women had to say about the challenges and opportunities they face on a daily basis:
Hump Day Exchange is one part social gathering of the Tech Square community and one part podcast recording. Each month, after sharing some food and drink, we explore one topic from three perspectives. Each guest goes into the hot seat to talk with our host 1:1, then all three guests engage in a roundtable conversation. We end with questions from the live studio audience.
