Limited Capacity seats available

Academic, entrepreneur and writer Vivek Wadhwa has been chastising Silicon Valley of late, calling on the tech industry to end its elitism and its arroganceóand, above all, its sexism.

“The percentage of women in engineering jobs is embarrassingly low,” Wadwha wrote in a recent article for the Wall Street Journal. And unlike some who have suggested that the reason for the dearth of women in tech is due to a lack of women studying computer science, Wadwha blames the tech companies for not doing enough to ensure their workforces are diverse. In his C2SV talk on Friday, Sept. 12, he will discuss what he has learned about this issue while researching a forthcoming book on the subject.

Vivek will be speaking with Elisa Camahort Page, Co-founder | COO of BlogHer.

Elisa Camahort Page is one of the three co-founders of BlogHer, Inc., along with Lisa Stone and Jory Des Jardins. As COO of the company, Elisa leads the BlogHer conference business, including the BlogHer annual conference, which hosted more than 5,500 attendees in 2012.
