Ellen J. Kullman: I believe in science....They [people] need to see it, understand it, [and we need to] arm them with facts, educate them, and let them make their choices.

It's the year 2016, and unfortunately, we still meet big inequalities between women and men, but I would say we're on a good path to “balance“. Of course, there will never be perfect equality, that is just impossible; it's like yin and yangyou need black in white and white in black. But concerning the Stem field, women in STEM need to consider studying, excelling and building up their career. Look at successful STEM companies, many of them are lead by women: Xerox, Google, General Motors, etc. But no one pays attention to that; doesn´t mean it can't be true. This cliché of women, stationed in the kitchen and taking care of children,  should be erased from the minds of ladies and gentlemen. I know you might say that this seems natural since this is how was for centuries, and it was, it shouldn't be anymore. The time is different, everything is going forward, everything is changing. Before men were seen as  the predator, but now there are many possible leaders. That is what we call evolution.

Ruth Porat: The Leader of The Alphabet

Ruth Porat is representative of the future of Silicon Valley. Her move westward is indicative of Silicon Valley businesses moving towards a more gender balanced and investor conscious way of operating. This shows that even for a company as large and successful as Google is, the California tech industry is dynamic and ever-evolving. In making this move, Porat serves as a significant role model in the tech industry as a powerful woman at the forefront of a business who is driving internal changes to further the integrity of her organization and improve future products.
