  • Business Best Practices: Transparency, Tech Ethics and Tech for Good
    Business Best Practices: Transparency, Tech Ethics and Tech for Good Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 22 2018 61 mins
    80% of developers don’t feel it’s their responsibility if unethical products go live. Are they right? This episode of WIT: Women in Touch features a conversation among women in tech who believe this majority is not right. As a follow up to July's Coed: Ethics conference, a London tech ethics conference, we're grabbing a cuppa with women who are actively working on the ethics surrounding data science, decision making, scaling, coding, the psychology and motivation behind it all.

    Who should join? While our guests are awesome women in tech, the cases of Facebook, Uber and Volkswagen are not just isolated incidents and everyone at any level at any company faces ethical decisions every day. We think everyone can benefit from joining this discussion live or listening to the recording after! Applying a framework or an action plan to consider the ethical implications of your work is a business best practice.

    How can we move from writing oaths and manifestos to best practices?

    This week's guests:
    Yanqing Cheng - high-scale networking systems engineer with MetaSwitch Networks - a job mixing forward-looking ideas with decades-old protocols, which provides constant insights into the balancing act between innovation and stability. She is fascinated by machine learning and future tech, and its impact on ethical decision making.

  • The Future of Work in the 21st Century: Multigenerational Teams
    The Future of Work in the 21st Century: Multigenerational Teams Monique Morrow, President & Co-Founder, The Humanized Internet Recorded: Aug 15 2018 51 mins
    The way in which we work is changing. Technology, social norms and economic influences are impacting the working world every day.

    Did you know the right to work is a human right? It allows men and women of all ages and backgrounds to become self-reliant in dignity and free from discrimination. At a time when technology is taking over the workplace and a younger demographic is entering most workforces, it's more imperative than ever to understand the future of work and how multi-generational teams can make a meaningful impact on your business.

    Tune in with Monique Morrow, Dedicated Futurist, Technologist and Advisor, as she discusses these ever-important topics, opportunities and calls to action.
  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 8 2018 62 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.
  • BrightTALK Masterclass Series: Finding the Right Investor
    BrightTALK Masterclass Series: Finding the Right Investor Jessica Dick, Co-founder of Five Years Time Recorded: Aug 2 2018 49 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Masterclass Series.

    Raising Investment for your early stage business is a big decision. Whilst the process itself is gruelling, managing investors once they are on board has its own set of challenges.

    Although investment can feel like “free money”, it is in fact the most expensive cash you’ll ever raise, as the returns investors expect, along with the rights and privileges you must be prepared to grant them, can be very onerous to a startup.

    Indeed investors can make or break a business, and having a brilliant, supportive investor who shares your vision is gold dust and can propel you to the next level.

    Join our webinar with Jessica Dick, co-founder of Five Years Time, a company focused on supporting founders to get investment ready and navigate the minefield of the fundraising process.

    The webinar will present the different types of funding that are available to early stage businesses, and will focus on the key characteristics of angel investors and Venture Capital.

    The webinar will then explore the concept of "Smart Money" and will give you some examples of what to expect once the investment has come in. Finally we will give you tips around what to look for in an investor, what questions to ask and how to set up the relationship from the start to ensure smooth sailing.
