Eva Helén, Founder of Women In Tech - An Event For Guys: On Owning Your Ambition, Taking Up Space, & Making Sure Your Story Is Visible

Next Wave Leadership Podcast

Eva Helén is the Founder and CEO of EQ Inspiration, an organization that inspires men in tech to promote women’s advancement and equality in the industry. She is also a Board Director at Vasion, a software company that helps organizations digitize content and automate workflows. In addition to this, Eva is the author of the soon-to-be-published book Women in Tech — A Book for Guys. In the past 20 years, Eva has co-founded, built, and sold two software companies, including Sanbolic, which was founded in 2000 and acquired by Citrix in 2015. In this episode… Do you want to create a more vibrant, equitable, diverse workplace? Are you looking for resources and strategies to help you and your company create a more female-friendly environment in the office? According to experienced leader and diversity advocate Eva Helén, transformation is a team effort. In other words, men and women must work together to champion diversity in and out of the workplace if we hope to effect real, lasting change. Unfortunately, this is more difficult in some industries than others. In tech, it’s often difficult for women to enter the industry — let alone attain a leadership position. However, this is exactly why leaders like Eva do what they do: to help both men and women band together to revolutionize historically male-dominated fields. In this episode, Eva Helén, the Founder and CEO of EQ Inspiration, sits down with Dov Pollack to discuss the importance of men playing an active role in women’s workplace empowerment. Listen in as Eva talks about helping men become more inclusive leaders, her journey from Sweden to Silicon Valley, and why owning your story as a female leader can be your true superpower. Stay tuned!
