Recode has invited some of the top female writers in the business to talk about the role of women in tech, writing and media.
The conversation, which kicks off Wednesday, is moderated by Kara Swisher, who covers technology at Recode and hosts the Recode Podcast.
Swisher will join Recode co-founder Adam Bain and others for the panel.
The panelists will include: Jenna Johnson, founder and CEO of The Hottest 100 app, who is an alumna of the Women in Tech Network (WITS), a non-profit focused on women in technology and the media.
Johnson’s new book, Women at Work: How Women Make Technology Happen, is available now, and she joins us on Recode to talk more about how women in the tech industry can be leaders.
Johnson also sits on Recodes board of directors, and in 2016, she received the prestigious Fields Medal, which is given annually to women in industry for contributions to technology.
Johnson is the author of a book on women working in technology, The Lean Startup.
Johnson also sits as a board member of WITS.
Swisher, Johnson and others are working to expand their organization into an advocacy group for female tech entrepreneurs.
Johnson has led the effort to make women in leadership roles at tech companies like Facebook and Uber, and Johnson is also a founder of Women in Technology for Women in America.
Recode’s Jillian Kay Melchior, host of Recode Decode, will also join the panel with a focus on women at large in tech.
She joined Recode last year and is also an alum of the WITS and the Women In Tech Network.
Melchior is also on Recoding’s board of advisors.
She is also the founder of the nonprofit Women in Business and Technology.
Johnson is the co-author of the new book Women at Heart: How women make technology happen, which tells the story of how women can help change the world.
It is available from Amazon.
Johnson was the first woman to write for an Apple app and is currently a staff writer at The New York Times.
She has been an advocate for women in science, technology, engineering and math fields, and has worked on projects to promote STEM education in schools.
In a 2016 profile, Johnson wrote: It’s not that I am a woman at all, but rather that I have worked in the field for the past 30 years.
I have seen a shift in women from boys and men in science and technology to girls and women.
She is also working to raise money for the Women’s Leadership Initiative, a program aimed at increasing women in business and the nonprofit sector.
Johnson co-founded WITS in 2015, and founded WITS’ Women’s Entrepreneurs Program in 2015.
In 2015, Johnson was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, and was named to the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World.
The women in Recode will also discuss Johnson’s work and how it can help the women of the future.
