  3. 3. 3© Cloudera, Inc. All rights reserved. We hold these truths to be self-evident: • Diverse teams perform better. • Symptoms are worse in technical groups, but the problem is bigger. • Fixing gender imbalance is an economic necessity. • We can’t hire enough people and we have huge problems to solve. • The pipeline is a problem needs attention. However: • I’m going to concentrate on ideas for current company leadership.

  5. 5. 5© Cloudera, Inc. All rights reserved. "One thing I hope [companies will] break with is the “diversity industrial complex”: the standard approach of making token hires, offering sensitivity training, setting up mentoring networks, and introducing other incremental changes that focus on altering women’s behavior to, say, make them better negotiators. When an organization lacks diversity, it’s not the employees who need fixing. It’s the business systems.” – Joan C. Williams, Distinguished Professor of Law and Founding Director of the Center of WorkLife Hastings College of the Law, University of California From “Hacking Tech’s Diversity Problem”:

  7. 7. 7© Cloudera, Inc. All rights reserved. Other important steps • Acknowledge and address unconscious bias • Train and cultivate allies for women and other underrepresented groups in the workplace • Get rigorous on compensation and promotion metrics • All employees – but especially men in leadership roles – need to act in support of gender equity • Silence is complicity
  8. 8. 8© Cloudera, Inc. All rights reserved. Is there any good news? • Generational shift from my early career in the 1980s • Recognition of women as leaders in diverse roles • Kim Stevenson, CIO at Intel • Hilary Mason, data science ninja and founder at Fast Forward Labs • Many, many more! • Increased attention to diversity and gender issues among company leaders • $300M committed by Intel to improving diversity
