Research shows that diverse teams foster creativity, innovation, a better understanding of users, and higher revenue, yet women hold only ~35% of product management positions.
In this fireside chat, we’ll talk with three of our Product Makers community members — Jenny Cu, Eva Beasley, and Parveen Downer — about their experiences as women in product including:
Eva is a product manager, graduate student, volunteer, and Toastmasters member. Her passions include advocating for diversity, equality, and inclusion for all womxn in technology, caring for her turtle, and cheering on all major Philadelphia sports teams. Go Birds!
Parveen is a Senior Product Manager at Semble (an exciting health tech start-up in London). Having worked in startups and medium-sized companies, she has a plethora of experience leading co-located and international cross-functional product teams. With a background in health sciences and operations, her path into product management was sparked by an interest in solving problems at scale for users and a love of facilitating collaboration.
With 15+ years of PM experience at large companies like eBay and Yahoo and small startups (and even trying her own), Jenny Cu has a great deal of hands-on experience in the field that helps her guide other product managers on a similar path. As a technical recruiter and career coach now, she has a unique perspective of the job market from both sides. Learn more about working with Jenny at jennycu.com.
