From a special panel held during Denver Startup Week, hosted by Anthony Franco, Managing Editor of Talking Offline.

For the last few years, businesses have focused on improving women’s workplace status to ensure they receive equal compensation, respect, and opportunity. Hallelujah!

But many organizations, with good intentions, are starting to take pro-women policies too far; policies that may ultimately hurt the women they are designed to help and worse, alienate the other 50% of their workforce.

Hosted by Anthony Franco, this panel of prominent women leaders discuss their experiences with “Leaning-In” and how organizational attitudes are helping, and often hurting, gender relationships in the workplace.

Panelists Include
Krystal Covington (@KrystalGoLead)
President & Founder of “Women of Denver”

Andrea Young
CIO/CTO BI Incorporated

Judy Batenburg
SVP/IT, Starz

Tosha Zeitlin
Director – IT Service Management at Dish Network
