Welcome to Ep. 36, this is a different angle.
A while back we interviewed Lexi Rhorer to hear her experiences working in the legal department of some well known tech companies. She has observed that tech companies are filling head general counsel positions with women. While they may be doing better than other industries, there is still room for improvement. Lexi believes that apprenticeship programs do work in the tech industry and these opportunities can increase employee diversity. Studies show that diverse companies are more successful, likely because different people bring unique viewpoints to the table. It is also important to have diverse leaders to retain talent at the lower levels.
Lexi Rhorer is the Associate General counsel at Segment where she is in charge of the commercial legal functions as well as employment. She has worked in the legal department of various interesting tech companies and holds a J.D. degree from the University of California, Hastings College of Law.
