In this podcast I interview Google’s Alana Karen, a 20 year tech leader who brilliantly and systematically replaces what we think we know about women in tech with more than 80 women’s stories of what it’s honestly like to join, lead, leave and thrive in today’s top technology companies. Alana answers questions like what’s it actually like for women in tech? Are our diversity efforts even working? Should women avoid working for technology companies altogether? How do you navigate becoming a leader, motherhood, bad bosses and everything in between? These are just some of the questions Alana Karen helps to answer with her new award-winning book, “Adventures of women in tech: How we got there and why we stay? From Google search ads, google fiber, to google grants and beyond, Alana has been leading the charge to develop, scale, build and drive team and product development that has seen a rippling industry impact. In this podcast Alana and I will discuss some of the toughest challenges she & other women have faced and how they overcame these obstacles. She also shows us the many paths to a satisfying career in tech and different ways to balance work & life goals. https://www.amazon.com/Adventures-Women-Tech-Here-Stay-ebook/dp/B08HSMY2GH
