Forbes | It's Time To End The Pay Gap For Speakers At Tech Conferences

When the request came through her website for Luvvie Ajayi to speak at The Next Web conference, she forwarded it to her agent, as she always does. But when the response came back that TNW doesn't pay speakers nor cover travel costs, she did something new: she asked her network if that was true.

Forbes | How Studying Theater Can Give You An Advantage In The Startup World

That overlap of theater and tech is how Dan Maccarone and I first met two years ago, when I was a guest on his podcast, Story in a Bottle. It was the first time I met someone else in the tech world who knew my secret: that creating startups is basically the same process and skillset as creating theater. So I invited him to co-author this piece on the things we learned while studying theater that give us an unfair advantage in tech.

Women 2.0 | Stop Asking Permission: Be Seen, Be Heard

Undergraduate women at NYU Stern are facing the same difficulties that women at many top business schools face - they are underperforming their male peers, in large part because they hold back in classroom discussions.

When digging deeper, they realized that female students prefer to speak only when they are absolutely confident in their answer or when they feel completely prepared to enter the debate. They tend to take longer to raise their hand, have shorter and more concise comments, and often self-edit to manage their out-of-classroom image. As a result, these totally awesome women are losing ground before the game even starts.
