“Satya Nadella set off a firestorm last week after advising women to not explicitly ask for a raise, but rather rely on “good karma” …

“We caught up with some University of Washington computer science students who were representing their school at the conference (read how the UW is trying to increase women representation in computing here). Read on to hear what they had to say about Nadella’s comments and women in technology as a whole.”

UW CSE undergraduates Jennifer Kang and Karolina Pyszkiewicz,and UW CSE graduate student Amrita Mazumdar are interviewed. Topics include:

  • On Nadella’s comments and what it says about the tech industry
