businesswoman-on-phone-Denise BrosseauEarly in my career, I spent 10+ years working in the technology industry in marketing, product development and business development roles. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of coaching dozens of women executives from across the industry and I’ve been an invited speaker at about two dozen well-known global companies, including Intel, Microsoft, Intuit and VMWare.

In that time, I have identified a few key trends in the experiences (and complaints) of women working across the tech industry. Given that it was recently Women in Tech month, I thought it would be appropriate to share these four ideas for personal and corporate change as a starting point for how we can attract and retain more women in tech.
