Ep.19: A Very Strange & Wonderful Year for Women in Tech

Join me and three other female product managers as we discuss gender in the tech industry. WAIT! MEN! Please keep listening! I promise the isn’t just an hour of man bashing. This year was a little crazy - from Susan Fowler’s weird year at Uber to the Google Manifesto - and I thought we should dedicate an episode to answering some tough questions from women working in the tech industry. This episode is relevant to everyone, because if you’re not a woman, you at least work with women.

Guests: 

Karleen Mercuri, Product Manager at Closet Box
Amy Maher, Freelance Product Leader, Mentor at Galvanize. Follow her on Twitter  @_amymaher
Caroline Wood, Product Manager at Craftsy

Correction:
In the podcast, I mention a Harvard Study with Harry vs Hariet. I got that wrong. It's actually John vs. Jennifer and the study was conducted at Yale.
