Zendesk presents: Can the tech industry disrupt the status quo of women at work?

October is “Innovation Month” in the city of San Francisco, and the Mayors Office of Civic Innovation has launched an initiative to spotlight the organizations and entrepreneurs that make up today’s generation of innovators.

As part of this initiative, Zendesk, along with sf.citi, is hosting a lively conversation on Thurs, Oct 18, featuring Jon Erlichman of Bloomberg and execs from Zoosk, Vayable, BlackGirlsCode, Zendesk, and Women 2.0.

From Marissa Mayer’s rise to Yahoo CEO (while pregnant), to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s controversial Atlantic Monthly article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All”, and the heated presidential campaign underway, the debate about what it is to be a 21st-century woman continues to be hotly debated.

Can the tech industry rethink the traditional workforce and put women on an even playing field?

Join us for a conversation about how some of the leading stars in San Francisco's startup community see the evolution of the workplace within the tech industry.

Moderator:
- Jon Erlichman, Sr. West Coast Correspondent, Bloomberg

Panelists:
- Kelly Steckelberg, CFO & COO, Zoosk
- Jamie Wong, CEO, Vayable
- Kimberly Bryant, Founder, BlackGirlsCode
- Sepi Nasiri, VP, Women 2.0
- Saroj Yadav, Sr. Software Engineer, Zendesk

Date:
Thurs, Oct 18, 2012

Schedule:
6:00-6:30 pm, registration & networking
6:30-7:30 pm, panel presentation and Q&A questions
7:30-8:00 pm, drinks

We encourge anyone from the tech industry or other professionals to join us for this conversation.

More about Innovation Month:

The Mayors Office of Civic Innovation has launched in partnership with Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (GAFFTA), Office of Economic Workforce Development, sf.citi, San Francisco Travel, and Golightly House to spotlight the organizations and entrepreneurs that make up today’s generation of innovators.

Innovation Month helps tell the story of San Francisco as the best place to live, work and play. More than any other city, San Francisco is uniquely poised to innovate and invent the future right here, right now, by capitalizing on our greatest resource – our people. And innovation isn’t just about technology – it’s about a different way of thinking and approaching our problems. It is through innovative approaches to crime fighting and community involvement that San Francisco remains one of the safest big cities in America. It is through new ways to make it easier for companies to do business in SF.
