Publisher Description

“Technology has the worst record of promoting and retaining female executive…[This] book wanders through this paradox . . . to provide solutions." —Harvard Law Review

Tech giants like Apple and Google are among the fastest growing companies in the world, leading innovations in design and development. The industry continues to see rapid growth, employing millions of people: in the US it is at the epicenter of the American economy. So why is it that only five percent of senior executives in the tech industry are female? Underrepresentation of women on boards of directors, in the C-suite, and as senior managers remains pervasive in this industry. As tech companies are plagued with high-profile claims of harassment and discrimination, and salary discrepancies for comparable work, what prevents women from reaching management roles, and, more importantly, what can be done to fix it?

The Future of Tech is Female considers the paradoxes involved in women’s ascent to leadership roles, suggesting industry-wide solutions to combat gender inequality. Drawing upon fifteen years of experience in the field, Douglas M. Branson traces the history of women in the information technology industry in order to identify solutions for the issues facing women today. 

Branson unpacks the plethora of reasons women should hold leadership roles, both in and out of this industry. An invaluable resource for anyone invested in gender equality in corporate governance, The Future of Tech is Female lays out the steps toward a more diverse future for women in tech leadership
