Read YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki's Response to the Controversial Google 
Anti-Diversity Memo

        Yesterday, after reading the news, my daughter asked me a
        question. "Mom, is it true that there are biological reasons
        why there are fewer women in tech and leadership?"  That
        question, whether it's been asked outright, whispered quietly,
        or simply lingered in the back of someone's mind, has weighed
        heavily on me throughout my career in technology.  Though I've
        been lucky to work at a company where I've received a lot of
        support--from leaders like Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Eric
        Schmidt, and Jonathan Rosenberg to mentors like Bill
        Campbell--my experience in the tech industry has shown me just
        how pervasive that question is.  Time and again, I've faced
        the slights that come with that question. I've had my
        abilities and commitment to my job questioned. I've been left
        out of key industry events and social gatherings. I've had
        meetings with external leaders where they primarily addressed
        the more junior male colleagues. I've had my comments
        frequently interrupted and my ideas ignored until they were
        rephrased by men. No matter how often this all happened, it
        still hurt.
