I enjoyed hearing the “Roundtable on Strengthening Educational Ties between India – U.S.” panel from Gujarat last week. The event was hosted by the Institute of International Education, with Trish Tierney of IIE-SF as the moderator. The panel was held at the LinkedIn San Francisco offices when registration numbers outgrew the original venue. I was particularly interested in the discussion about the importance of entrepreneurship and mentoring in India.
The subject of women in technology came up several times. My favorite quotes:
- “We are focused on women because men would happen in any case.”
- “For women, Engineering is the last frontier.”
