We had a very lively discussion on Conversation Central this morning! Karen and Yvette were excited to welcome Holly Stump and Carol Hallett into the studio to discuss some of the challenges that women today face in the tech industry. Having spent much of their careers in the semiconductor industry, Holly and Carol both had interesting thoughts and advice to share with women of all ages about working in high tech. From talking about Lisa Johnson Mandell’s Six Subtle Moves That Hold Women Back From Success to discussing how to mentor and encourage young women to enter the technology industry, this show was full of valuable information that women and men alike won’t want to miss!
