"The Leadership Machine: All the Research about Female Career Advancement Summed up in One Usable Diagram" - Janice Fraser, Pivotal, Director, People Team

"Even after 20 years in Silicon Valley, Janice Fraser was baffled by the hundreds of articles and studies that each try to explain why women don't advance into senior leadership at the same rate as men. Drawing upon dozens of these publications, Janice has mapped out the system, in simple boxes and arrows, showing clearly where the leaks are in the leadership pipeline for women, and how we can plug them. Her findings provide a powerful roadmap for men and women who want to do better for themselves and their colleagues. By courageously looking at how people really advance and what holds them back, we can each develop explicit strategies for managing our own careers and understanding how best to support others."

Janice is one of America's leading experts on Lean Startup. She has coached many organizations including the White House, Navy Seals Training Command, Lyft, and Proctor & Gamble. Janice's current role is to enable Pivotal’s quickly scaling teams to apply Lean and Agile methodologies to solve critical business issues.
