Summary

Zendesk presents: Can the tech industry disrupt the status quo of women at work?
October is “Innovation Month” in the city of San Francisco, and the Mayors Office of Civic Innovation has launched an initiative to spotlight the organizations and entrepreneurs that make up today’s generation of innovators.
As part of this initiative, Zendesk, along with sf.citi, is hosting a lively conversation on Thurs, Oct 18, featuring Jon Erlichman of Bloomberg and execs from Zoosk, Vayable, BlackGirlsCode, Zendesk, and Women 2.0.
From Marissa Mayer’s rise to Yahoo CEO (while pregnant), to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s controversial Atlantic Monthly article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All”, and the heated presidential campaign underway, the debate about what it is to be a 21st-century woman continues to be hotly debated.
Can the tech industry rethink the traditional workforce and put women on an even playing field?
Join us for a conversation about how some of the leading stars in San Francisco's startup community see the evolution of the workplace within the tech industry.
