Conversations with some of the new female tech founders - what they are doing and how they think we can encourage other women to pursue this path.

My favourite quote from Trisha Prabhu: “You do look at Silicon Valley and think: ‘Why would I want to work there?’ There aren’t many people who look like me, as a woman of colour, there are harassment allegations, and often there isn’t an environment that’s respectful of women’s needs. Many companies don’t have policies like maternity leave, for example, or have women in leadership.”

I’ve been looking into tools that would help me transcribe / edit user research interviews and came across this. Looks like an amazing tool, so I’ll give it a try when I can … Even if you’re not into user research, it looks like a great way to edit podcasts or similar recorded materials. And it’s just beautifully designed!
