What Works: Gender Equality By Design
Author Iris Bohnet in conversation with Anne Spalding of Dev BootCamp

Women are still breaking the "glass ceiling" in terms of employment and advancement. In this new book, Iris Bohnet draws on data and experimental studies conducted around the world and in a variety of settings to offer a blueprint for removing gender bias from the workplace today. From the way we look at resumes, conduct interviews, and even decorate the hallways, there are dozens of simple, inexpensive, and efficient changes that can be made to yield a significantly more diverse and dynamic workplace. Anne Spalding talks about Dev Bootcamp’s pioneer training program for web development and coding. She will address the challenges and opportunities for women in tech sector in SF and the Bay Area.

Iris Bohnet is Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and the director of its Women and Public Policy Program. She serves on the boards of directors of Credit Suisse and University of Lucerne, and the Advisory Board of the Vienna University of Economics and Business. She is a member of the Global Agenda Council on Behavior of the World Economic Forum. She and her husband and two children live in Newton, Massachusetts.
