Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella garnered some unwelcome publicity this week when he suggested that women in tech should be patient and  wait for “karma” to bring their salaries in line with those of their male counterparts.  Social media quickly excoriated Nadella for his remarks and he has spent the past few days trying to walk back his comments.  A Forbes article about the incident by Kathy Caprino that looks at the entire incident and provides some background about Nadella concludes that Nadella in not anti-women but could definitely use an empathy check.

But what should women in technology (and elsewhere)  do to increase the chances of advancement in pay and position?  Check out this TED talk by Susan Calantuono on the “ Career Advice You Probably Didn’t Get.”  Men who find their careers stalled, or even just a little stuck, will find this video helpful as well.
