Introducing a New Leadership Style for the Tech Industry

Corporate Advising ᐧ Speaking

Tech is a magical industry … for most people.

For an industry that’s responsible for literally building the future,
we still have some pretty outdated thinking to address.

A Few Astounding Stats to Reflect on

  • 56% of women leave the tech industry after 10 – 20 years, with the #1 cited reason being “unfair business practices”
  • 37% of people in tech leave yearly due to inequity when 57% of those people would have stayed if their companies had addressed their concerns
  • This amounts to a loss of $16B annually when you consider the average cost to replace a tech employee is $144,000 – and that’s low for executives, which often cost 213% of their salary!
  • Only 20% of teams in tech work to their full potential

What in the world can be done?

Enter the

Empathy In Tech Framework

A Game changer in Engineering Leaders in Tech
(fraught with gaming analogies to amp up the fun factor)

Phase 1
Player One:

Effective & Fair Management Principles & Practices

As a leader, you’re “Player One”. It all starts with you. Let’s make sure you’re fully equipped to lead a diverse team, so you can win in business by winning with your people.

Phase 2
Multiplayer Mode:


Let’s apply the management principles you learned in phase 1 to build  a culture so equitable, fair, and inclusive, everyone wants to work for you.

Pillar 3
In Full Effect

Make DEI a
Business Success

Let’s systemize what we know it takes to create a winning culture: diversity, psychological safety, and fair business practices. When tied to profit, these metrics ensure we all win.
