Event description

Description

Join NY Times Best-Selling Author and Award-Winning Journalist Julian Guthrie for a fireside chat where she will take you behind the closed doors of venture capital, and share the lives and careers of four women who were largely written out of history - until now. Described as Hidden Figures meets The Social Network, Alpha Girls is a story of women who bucked the system and found ways to survive and thrive in the cutthroat, high-stakes, male dominated world of Silicon Valley.

Then meet the female funders who are transforming the landscape in Silicon Valley. Learn how to step into your own power: those who invest in companies have a great deal of power over the future workforce, board positions and the culture in our key sources of innovation today.
