Woman in Tech of the Week (3/29/17)
Lisa Skeete Tatum, Co-founder and CEO, Landit Inc.
The harsh reality for modern women is that while 47 percent of them comprise the total workforce, they still only receive 78 cents for every man’s dollar. And women still lack admission to higher-paying sectors, like tech. Despite technology companies striving to hire women software developers, only one out of every six developers are female, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Using a career development tool as opposed to job boards and professional networking sites may be the future for women to bridge the pay gap and begin moving toward careers that lead to conquering the glass ceiling.
‘It’s all about the power of one-size-fits-one. And you can only do that through technology with the appropriate human touchpoint,” said Lisa Skeete Tatum, co-founder and chief executive officer at Landit Inc. “So, the element of success, the playbook, is common, but how it gets used, what it recommends, how it paths you is all about the individual.”
Skeete Tatum spoke about women in tech with Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio, during the Professional Business Women of California Conference in San Francisco, California.
