Overview

In the last three decades, the tech industry has shot to the head of the global economy. The center of this advancement, Silicon Valley, is home to the biggest, most successful, and innovative companies.

Places like Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and others in the area frequently come out on top as the best companies to work for. A big part of this is their progressive, inclusive work environments. Or so we think.

While we'd like to keep these companies in high regard, the truth is that they've got some work to do. They employ an overwhelmingly larger number of men than women, and the workplace isn't the best place for the few females that do have jobs there.

This is what Emily Chang dives into with her book Brotopia: Breaking Up the Boys' Club of Silicon Valley. She exposes the sexism of the tech giants and also reveals the benefits that equality has in business and life.
