HeForShe 2016: Driving Change in Silicon Valley

Version 2

    UN Women, Stanford University, Jive and PwC Executives Speak Candidly and Pragmatically about Achieving Gender Parity

    Last Thursday, January 7th, Fortune’s Michal Lev-Ram led an engaging and sometimes sobering conversation with the Head of UN Women’s HeForShe movement Elizabeth Nyamayaro, Jive CEO Elisa Steele, Stanford University Sociologist Marianne Cooper, Ph.D. and PwC Partner Colby Conner on where we stand today in Silicon Valley, and in the U.S., regarding the advancement of women and their representation in leadership roles. Although the panelists noted we are not likely to see gender equality in their lifetime, they did predict that those entering the workforce now likely will.

    Lauren Hockenson from The Next Web wrote a comprehensive article on the panel, which is a great read.
