She's a C-Word! Lessons From Tech’s C-Suite Women

The c-word. Some women might cringe at the thought of it, yet others light up. They choose the latter when the word is C-level. But what does it take for women to break through the C-suite glass ceiling, especially in the tech industry’s notorious boy’s club.
Silicon Valley is a cutthroat job market where unbelievable talent line the streets. We’re currently at a time when “leaning in” is encouraged, but is that really the right path to success? What are the real challenges – personal and professional – that women need to navigate in order to succeed?

Moderated by Re/Code’s Kara Swisher, this panel will feature powerful women who’ve made it to the C-suite in Silicon Valley – Lyft’s CMO Kira Wampler, Pandora’s CSO Sara Clemens, and BlogHer’s CEO Lisa Stone. Together, they will share their approach towards problem solving, leadership, and interpersonal challenges. They will also share their own stories about how they got their start, how they’ve landed where they are now.
