Inspiring and Mentoring Women of Color in Tech with Susanne Tedrick
While women currently represent 47% of the workforce in the US, they only make up 28% of the workforce in science and technology- and the statistics are even worse for women of color. Why? How can we do better and increase the participation of women and people of color in STEM? This week, Laura sits down with Susanne Tedrick, a cloud computing tech specialist and author of Women of Color in Tech: A Blueprint for Inspiring and Mentoring the Next Generation of Technology Innovators, to discuss practical advice to help women and people of color coming up through the pipeline get the support they need. Originally aired with Host Laura Zarrow on June 25, 2020 on SiriusXM's Business Radio Powered by The Wharton School, Channel 132.
