Cultural Impact of Gender Gap Among Technology Companies

May 15, 2012

Vic Schachter was quoted in the Marketplace technology story, “Hey brogrammer, let’s crush som​e code,” broadcast on National Public Radio (NPR). The story discusses the gender gap among technology and startup companies and how that impacts corporate culture among computer scientists and programmers.

The story includes commentary from Mr. Schachter acknowledging that these types of situations can be tricky for social networks which have businesses that can blur the lines between public and private. He said, “These companies believe in very open, frank communication and in fact in some cases, I’ve heard people say - Privacy, get over it.”
