Work-Bench Blog — Work-Bench & NEA Present: An Evening with Best-Selling Author Sallie Krawcheck [Video]
Earlier this March, we partnered with NEA to host a special town hall at Work-Bench with Sallie Krawcheck, author of the best-selling book Own It: The Power of Women at Work. One of the most influential women to have ever worked on Wall Street, Sallie Krawcheck shared an honest view of both her professional and personal experiences in navigating a male-dominated industry, and her best tactics and tips for success.
At Work-Bench, we believe one of the great challenges we still face in enterprise technology is this very real gender gap that persists. And this is why as a venture fund we’re passionate about supporting women in enterprise tech — across our women’s lunches, speaker series, and recently launched #hackthenetwork mentor program.
The sold-out audience was an incredible and diverse group of women across our NYC enterprise tech community, as well as supportive men, and we’re excited for more to come. We’ll be hosting many more town hall series this year here at Work-Bench, as well as our first-ever Women in Enterprise Tech Summit this fall, so sign up here to learn more.
Follow along with the terrific conversation that was trending on Twitter using the hashtag #SallieWB, and watch Sallie’s keynote below.
