Recruiters Tell All: The Quest for Gender Equality

Ellen’s Pao’s lawsuit. Harassment by tech venture capitalists. Hiring scantily clad models at a biotech party to increase the number of women attending. Industries at the heart of the innovation economy – tech and biotech – were rocked recently by reports of blatant sexism, renewing calls for gender equality. Join us for a dialog with two individuals at the front lines of change -- recruiters -- who will share insights into barriers and solutions that will catapult us towards gender equality.

Questions

  1. What barriers to gender equality currently exist in the tech and biotech sectors?
  2. What actions can individuals and institutions take to achieve and accelerate gender equality?
  3. Are barriers to gender equality the same or different for tech and biotech industries?
