Women of Color in Tech:  Engaging Male Allies 

Presented in Partnership with

Premier Sponsor

 

It’s widely known that the representation of women of color in the tech industry is dismal. Hispanic women hold less than 1 percent of tech leadership positions and Black women hold less than 0.5 percent. While Asians, overall, are more highly represented in the tech workforce, Asian women are the least likely to end up in the C-Suite, as they are often perceived as “doers” and not “leaders”.

Barriers to advancement are further compounded by the fact that most corporate leaders tend to choose protégés of the same race or gender. Women of color need leaders who do not look like them to talk them up behind closed doors, steer plum assignments their way, and help set them up for C-Suite and board level positions.

Join us as we also bring men into the conversation and define clear actions to help forge gender partnerships where individuals are valued, supported and promoted on the basis of their unique strengths and capabilities.
