In her recent book, "Brotopia," Emily sheds light on the treatment of female technology professionals. We discuss Emily’s campaign for workplace equality, how Sandy combats her daughter’s book trolls, and the best advice Emily ever got from Sheryl Sandberg. Emily Chang is the anchor and executive producer of Bloomberg Technology, a daily TV show focused on global technology and Bloomberg Studio 1.0, where she regularly speaks to top executives, investors, and entrepreneurs. She was previously a CNN correspondent based in Beijing and London, and has won five regional Emmy awards for her reporting. Her work has also appeared in Vanity Fair and Bloomberg Businessweek. Emily is a graduate of Harvard University and lives in San Francisco with her husband and three children. Sandy Chang is a proud mom, grandmother, and writing teacher. She was born in Philadelphia, the middle child in a family of seven. She worked on Capitol Hill as a legislative writer while earning her Master's Degree at Georgetown University. That's where she met her late husband, a law student from Hawaii. They moved back to his hometown where they raised two daughters. Sandy has taught for three decades first at Punahou School in Honolulu and now at a private school in The Bay Area where she enjoys being closer to her children and grandchildren. .·:*'`*:·..·:*'`*:·.·:*'`*:·..·:*'`*:·.·:*'`*:·.
