    This book is well researched and well considered While Silicon Valley has been impacted by #metoo with some powerful men stepping down from their companies it's not enough just to think in terms of a few bad apples; the entire cultu

    This was really interesting While many of us are all aware of sexism in general and in tech I learned a lot I didn't know like how the first few tech companies got started and how the culture at those companies rippled throughout Silicon Valley And that even good intentions like Google's commitment to hiring women from the start don't always go well because it can be hard to maintain those numbers when a business starts growing rapidly I

    I had high hopes for this book to be the book that addresses the gender biases in tech and the workplace I was really hoping that a journalist at Bloomberg could shed some serious light on this timely issue Instead I found the book to be poorly research and one that mostly read like Page Six name dropping and exaggerated story telling Perhaps she is planning to go work at TMZ One sentence on page 166 yes I read the wh

Brotopia Breaking Up the Boys' Club of Silicon Valley

For women in tech Silicon Valley is not a fantasyland where millions of dollars grow on trees It's a Brotopia where men hold all the cards and make all the rules Vastly outnumbered women face toxic workplaces rife with discrimination and sexual harassment where investors take meetings in hot tubs and network at sex partiesIn this powerful exposé Bloomberg TV journalist Emily Chang reveals how Silicon Valley got so sexist despite its utopian ideals why bro culture endures despite decades of companies claiming the moral high ground Don't Be Evil Con I know how tricky it can be for a white straight cis dude to write anything negative about a book like this I feel that my identity will be held against me and my review discounted as a result but I m going to share a review anywayThis book is a missed opportunity So much hype for it So much interest in it But so little promise fulfilledA big problem with the book is that there s almost nothing in it you can t find in many of the articles and reporting of the metoo movement The section about sex parties was the most original bit of reporting but it was already published onlineRegarding that sex party story it stinks A friend and former colleague of mine whose honesty I do not doubt tells me that she was at the party and that it wasn t anything like the one Emily Chang described and that she my friend would have left if it were anything like that What s people warned Chang that her story was inaccurate but she chose to publish it anyway Maybe not unethical but probably not uality journalism eitherThat said this is a a good book to give someone who feels downtrodden by bros and who hasn t been keeping up with the news Perhaps a young person in her first job in corporate America struggling with her first encounters with the sexism that pervades our culture This is also a good book for leaders who haven t been keeping up with the issues There s the rub if those leaders haven t cared enough to become enlightened before now this book isn t going to end up on their nightstand I know two CEOs that I d love to give this book to but I know neither of them would read itMy biggest issue with this book is that it s not thoughtful or deep enough It doesn t cover the roots of gendered ineuality It completely avoids talking about the patriarchal behaviors in our broader society It avoids talking about business culture in general and the roots of meritocratic ideals including the redeeming aspects of these ideals The tech business inherited many of its norms from our broader society but Chang chose not to touch on the broader cultural context She stuck narrowly to just tech and the book is less because of itOne thing the book dangerously agrees with gender essentialist ways of seeing the differences between sexes and in doing so it extends sexist behaviors and the justifications used for them Chang unthinkingly champions stereotypes that suggest the differences we observe between genders derive naturally from our underlying DNA rather than from thousands of years of cultural baggageWhat I mean by this I learned from the book Testosterone Rex which I recommend over this book any day Here s a uote from Testosterone Rex When we think in essentialist ways about social groups the differences between them seem large unbridgeable inevitable unchangeable and ordained by nature Those who think in gender essentialist ways are likely to embrace gender stereotypes that are the foundation of intended and unintended discrimination in the workplace They are likely to feel negatively toward power seeking women relative to men They are likely to allocate childcare in a traditional way They are likely to prefer that the husband earns in a heterosexual marriage and to expect to make traditional work care tradeoffs Women encouraged to take a essentialist view of gender become vulnerable to stereotype threat the reduction in performance and interest in traditionally masculine domains triggered by negative stereotypes about women Gender essentialist thinking makes men evaluate sex crimes leniently and makes people less supportive of progressive gender policies and feel comfortable with the status uo Anyway Brotopia is an OK book overall I think those of us who have agreed to take responsibility for our own actions and how they impact others are even obligated to read books like this so I m glad I read it But this is no Pulitzer contender nor even touching memoir nor brilliantly worded polemic It s like a book length article than a major contribution to the movement Huorasatu in tech

REVIEW Brotopia Breaking Up the Boys' Club of Silicon Valley

Nect the World and how women are finally starting to speak out and fight backDrawing on her deep network of Silicon Valley insiders Chang opens the boardroom doors of male dominated venture capital firms like Kleiner Perkins the subject of Ellen Pao's high profile gender discrimination lawsuit and Seuoia where a partner once famously said they won't lower their standards just to hire women Interviews with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer who got their start at Google where just one in five e This book is well researched and well considered While Silicon Valley has been impacted by metoo with some powerful men stepping down from their companies it s not enough just to think in terms of a few bad apples the entire culture could use a reboot when it comes to gender relations euality and the broadening of the talent pool It s been shown that diverse teams produce better products for on this I d recommend another book I just finished and reviewed called Technically Wrong So hopefully the innovators and disruptors in tech will read this book and heed the call What s moral is not just good PR it s also good for businessOkay I m off my soapbox now I just hope this book finds the readership it deserves
