In 2013, Victoria Espinel became CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance, which represents enterprise software companies and startups. “Definitely there’s been some progress and definitely there’s a lot more that needs to be done,” Espinel said about women in tech. Espinel and her team are urging lawmakers to pass legislation to boost STEM education and expand opportunities in tech, citing the Equality Act, Building Blocks of STEM Act and the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, to name a few.
