I have the privilege of belonging to the minority of female leaders in the venture capital space. Over the course of my career, and involvement in several business ventures, I have come to recognize the cost of unconscious bias and the downside of pattern recognition. Drawing on my experience, I would like to share with you some thoughts on what is happening in the venture capital arena with regard to gender bias and diversity that may be similar to what is happening in medicine.
