    3. How to hire and keep good women technologists

      How to hire and keep good women technologists

      I recently posted about Dropbox’s hiring practices and how they put women at a disadvantage. But Dropbox is by no means a worst offender. This is an industry-wide issue. The problem is a hidden bias that tech executives are generally unaware of. They honestly believe they are a meritocracy but don’t understand how their words and actions can discourage others who are not like them. The excuse that tech companies make for their lack of gender diversity is that the pipeline of women studying engineering is shrinking.

      As Wall Street Cheers Takeovers, Facebook's Buy Draws Skeptics

      Merger arbitrageurs used to have an easy calculus. When a big-time corporate takeover was announced they would go long the target, short the acquirer and pick up a few pennies on the dollar for their trouble. These days the trade is going the other way, with corporate buyers being rewarded by Wall Street for having the gumption to use their cash for something beyond dividends and share repurchases. Take the example Wednesdaymorning, when Signet Jewelers raced higher after agreeing to pony up $1.4 billion for diamond-dealing rival Zale Corporation.

    7. How tech companies scare women away from tech

      How tech companies scare women away from tech

      Does Dropbox try to be off-putting to women in technology? Unlikely. But a story from the Washington Post suggests that in the end, the company may do just that. The article pointed to interview questions that reportedly asked about a zombie apocalypse and superhero powers. Conference rooms where hiring interviews were held were called the Break-Up Room and the Bromance Chamber, the latter referring to a certain type of young male culture that seems stuck in a frathouse. Only men spoke at important all-employee meetings...

    8. Newly Elected President Of Institute of Medicine Is On The Pepsico Board Of Directors

      Newly Elected President Of Institute of Medicine Is On The Pepsico Board Of Directors

      Earlier today I reported the news that Victor Dzau, the chancellor for health affairs at Duke University and the CEO of the Duke University Health System, would become the next president of the Institute of Medicine. But I  failed to remember that I had written about Dzau several years ago. I think it will be of interest to many observers that Dzau currently serves on the Board of Directors of Pepsico. I've asked the IOM for a comment about this.
