Silicon Valley: Equity Inclusion

The New York Times, recently covered cases of sexual harassment of women in Silicon Valley. This is very disturbing considering  most innovative HR practices have evolved from the tech industry. One piece of statistics is very troublesome. Female entrepreneurs have been able to attract only $1.5 b funding from venture capitalists versus $58.2 b  for men. This translates to 2.5% of the total funding which is shocking. Its time to make access to seed and venture capital for all entrepreneurs more fair.
