After the powerhouse Women Techmakers panel of Googlers kicked off Google I/O festivities in San Francisco, a panel of women in technology and entrepreneurship were featured at Google I/O talking about “Designing for the Other Half: Sexy Isn’t Always Pink”.

Panelists for the session included TaskRabbit founder and CEO Leah Busque, Women 2.0 Director of All Things Offline Sepideh Nasiri, Polyvore co-founder and CEO Jess Lee, Pinterest engineer Tracy Chou, and Playmatics CEO Margaret Wallace.

Below is the panel about product innovation and business:

Thanks to Google I/O for involving Women 2.0 in the session planning. This may be the first time that a conference of this size hosted an all-woman panel to discuss building web products.

We encourage other game changer tech companies like Apple and Salesforce to include women by bringing them to the table.
