Sit At The Table (SATT).
Enabling more women to succeed in businesses and boardrooms everywhere has been a big topic lately, with tech companies vowing to do better in creating more diverse places to work. Canadian organization Sit At the Table, which took its name from Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, is pushing for more women in the C-suite. It tweets on digital marketing and social, but it also retweets often on the gender gap and promoting women in the workplace.
