Women of Silicon Valley

Women of Silicon Valley is a regional collaboration about the changing role of women in the Silicon Valley economy and community.   The project promotes social innovation to achieve the promise of the new economy.  Founded in Spring 2001.

Since the late 1970s, Silicon Valley has proved fertile ground for women’s political leadership. The years of Internet boom and post-“bubble” slowdown both raised questions about where the leadership would come from to shape Silicon Valley’s future.  Today, female leaders are emerging from diverse, new sources, including the entrepreneurial and technology world, but much more can be done to tap women’s talent, resources, and networks to address critical community issues, according to a new report issued by Women of Silicon Valley (February 2002).
