What Silicon Valley doesn't understand about men harassing women
To paraphrase Uber SVP Frances Frei: As more and more people speak out about harassment in tech, the industry has a chance to capitalize on that openness. Whether it has the willpower to follow through remains an open question. On the latest episode of Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher, diversity advocate Erica Baker and ProDay CEO Sarah Kunst explained how we got to this point of culture crisis and why the responses of Silicon Valley leaders have often felt lacking.

Q&A: Mae Jemison, first woman of color in space, talks STEM gaps and science fiction
In September, Dr. Mae Jemison will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her journey into space in 1992 - a trip she envisioned since her childhood. The voyage marked the first time an African-American woman left the earth's atmosphere. Jemison was in Seattle on Tuesday to speak at a conference. In light of her science literacy and education work - she created an international space camp for teens shortly after leaving NASA in 1994, and advocates for Bayer's Making Science Make Sense program - we asked her to talk about her passion for expanding opportunities in STEM for women and people of color. The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Why Women Don't See Themselves as Entrepreneurs
For many Americans, starting their own business is the manifestation of the American dream: Take a risk, work hard, get rich. So why don't more women do it?

Those who do own companies are half as likely as male founders to employ anyone other than themselves, and they generally earn less in revenue, according to census data analyzed in a new report by Third Way, a think tank. In technology, fewer than 10 percent of start-ups are owned by women, according to another new paper, by researchers at Harvard.

They're letters, loads of them, all directed at women engineering students who had contacted various universities about their interest in connecting with other women studying engineering. Lou Alta Melton and Hilda Counts, both students at the University of Colorado in 1919, were trying to start their own professional society. Their letters - and the many responses they received - are part of the Society of Women Engineers sprawling archives, which are housed at Wayne State University in Detroit.

WANTED: Woman in STEM, An Exploration of Influental Factors, Their Proffesional Journey and Ways to Foster Change
WITI (Women in Technology International) and 451 Research partnered to better understand the impact of gender in the workplace, specifically in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The survey was conducted in April/May 2016 and completed by 1,100 respondents, who are members of the WITI organization. Participants were asked about early life decisions and influences, mentoring and support, career choices and experiences, and opinions on the underrepresentation of women in STEM. Did you know that while 44% of women in STEM careers are looking for a leadership position, only 13% have actually achieved their goal by being promoted to one? This survey shines a light on this and other facts that show that women are still facing challenging road blocks in the workplace.
