  • In Inc.’s “Female Co-Founders: 7 Ways to Become the Boss,” we learned about a new study (appropriately titled “Who’s the Boss?”) that found in companies founded by mixed-sex teams, men are twice as likely to become the boss of the company as women.

  • On Medium, Cindy Hoang published “What It’s Like to Be a Girl Who Codes.” We found this excerpt especially compelling: “Being a girl is no excuse. It does not mean that if you want to be stronger, you can’t be. It does not mean that if you want to be smarter, you can’t be. Women have more power than they think. Yet the discouragement of society and lack of confidence dissuades them from going after their dreams and reaching their full potential.”
