The Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG) was created to share our lessons learned and knowledge of best practices with our clients. Our four partners are all industry veterans, who have each held executive level positions at major Silicon Valley firms where they have been instrumental in the development of leading products. We are not career consultants; we started SVPG to share what we’ve learned. >> Manifesto >> Team
Women in Product
Note 1: I’m focusing in this article on women, however, my points here are intended to apply to all under-represented groups.
Note 2: I am highlighting here the product role, which is a subset of the “women in tech” topic. I would also love to see more women in engineering and design roles, but I am especially focused on the product role because it’s such a strong path to CEO and GM roles.
I still remember the first time I personally witnessed gender-based discrimination in the tech workplace.
