Women 2.0’s CEO, Shaherose Charania, joined a round-table discussion to talk about the rise of women in tech on Bloomberg TV.

Covering topics from the glass ceiling to investors to young women becoming more involved in STEM fields, Charania shared insight on how the new trend of more women participating in tech is changing and challenging these sectors.

Charania pointed out that tech has and is still continuing to “grow up” as it infiltrates other industries including healthcare, finance and education. This has allowed a more diversified crowd to participate, including more women.
