Women Talk Gender Gap: LinkedIn's Sue Duke on skills and gender

"If you go on LinkedIn today and search in Germany for an engineer lead, if you look just based on previous experience, your talent pool is going to have 14% female representation. But if you search on the basis of who has the skill to do that job, female representation shoots up to 35%.”
