    Calling All Women 2.0 – We Need YOU To Be A Mentor

    “You should have had more women on that panel”

    By Heather Harde (Vice Chairman, sf.citi)

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    Investors Are The Nucleus Of Entrepreneurship – Meet Dozens Of Them At The Women 2.0 Conference

    Women 2.0 encourages me to build a healthy nucleus for a cell that aspires to thrive.

    By Katrina Salas-Padilla (Contributing Writer, Women 2.0)

    Women In Tech Like Working For Other Women In Tech

    Research shows that women gravitate toward women-led companies.

    By Blake Landau (Founder, Artemis)

    Get Satisfaction Vice President of Marketing Azita Martin never realized she was the only woman in the room, until she wasn’t. “Now that I’m here at Get Satisfaction, I realize how refreshing it is.

    Why It Pays To Mentor Women… Literally

    Mentoring and supporting more junior employees makes good sense for your own career.

    By Leah Eichler (Contributing Writer, Femme-O-Nomics)

    It’s time to stop the blame game. You know, the one where women quietly admit to each other that senior female executives play a role in the gender gap by not supporting more junior women or even thwarting their rise. It’s often referred to as the “queen bee” syndrome, meaning that there is only enough room for one of us at the top.
