Episode 178 of 836 episodes

Sexism in Silicon Valley: It's International Women's Day this weekend and this year's slogan is Make it Happen. Can women "make it happen" in the technology sector? We talk to Eric Ries, a Silicon Valley investor, entrepreneur and author, about whether there is a "boy's club" culture in technology. Also, the BBC's Karishma Vaswani wonders if careers advice for women in the West is relevant to females in the boardrooms and factory floors of Asia. And the BBC's Justin Rowlatt meets Nandan Nilekani, one of India's richest men and the co-founder and former chief executive of Infosys, perhaps India's best-known software company.
