The Real Story on Women and Leadership in the Tech Space
There are two truisms about the tech field. One is constant change; the other is it’s a man’s world.
Women make up about 25% of all IT employees, a seemingly low number except for the fact that it’s been steadily growing over the past decade. So what’s the secret for women to break into tech-related business? How can they be successful? And what leadership skills will keep them at the top?
WashU Olin welcomes Lisa Nichols, CEO and cofounder of Technology Partners, a provider of premier IT staffing, solutions and software. She also hosts the interview podcast Something Extra, which shines a light on each guest’s distinct leadership qualities. Nichols will sit down with communications professor Staci Thomas for a conversation that touches on many aspects of business in the technology space, including female representation (or, more appropriate, the lack thereof), innovation, entrepreneurship and values-driven leadership.
