Today Tech Cocktail COO and Executive Editor Jen Consalvo will be on NPR in Washington, DC as a guest on the popular Kojo Nnamdi Show. The title of the show is “The Tech Sector and The Glass Ceiling.” We cover lots of women in technology on TechCocktail.com, so we are excited to have the opportunity to discuss the topic on the show. The group will discuss gender and the workforce in the tech sector.
Jen will be joined by Stephanie Hay, the Co-Founder of FastCustomer, a startup we covered previously; Shireen Mitchell, Founder of Digital Sisters; and Lisa Morales-Hellebo, the Founder and CEO of the hot shopping startup ShopSuey, who recently appeared in the DC Startup Community micro-documentary.

The show description is below:
Women are starting businesses, writing code and raising capital for tech startups across the country. But according to at least one recent study, they account for fewer than a fifth of computer science majors in the United States. And most recognizable executives and public personalities in the tech world are men. Kojo talks with local tech entrepreneurs, and explores whether a “glass ceiling” still exists for women pursuing tech careers.
