We talk a lot at She Spends about the massive gender inequities going on in Silicon Valley. But solving this problem isn't as easy as we think.
Enter Fern Mandelbaum, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist who started a 10-week course at Stanford to teach tech bros about what it means to be inclusive. Her goal is to teach students about racial and gender inclusion in the workplace.
It's certainly a welcome change in the tech industry, which often pays lip service to diversity without actually implementing change. While we certainly hope to live in a world where founders already care about these issues, it's nice to see a top university taking major steps to make change.
