CB Insights is a company that builds software to predict technology trends, and clearly they used that technology when they put together the speaker list for CB Insights TRANSFORM. This “intimate gathering for growth-focused executives to learn from the experience of today’s most innovative companies” definitely follows the trend that tech conferences don’t have enough women on their speaker lists! Surely there are women leading innovative companies that were overlooked by organizers, as the 76% men/24% women list of speakers indicates. This imbalanced representation means attendees of this intimate gathering will not hear from enough smart, forward-thinking women, and that is not a trend we’re willing to accept.

Thank you to Dr. Janice Presser for sharing with us.
