The more things stay the same… the more they don’t change.

Waiting on the World to Change

Yesterday afternoon started as follows:  “On behalf of JPMorgan Chase CIO, Guy Chiarello, and our Technology, Media and Telecom Investment Banking team, I would like to invite you to the 3rd annual J.P. Morgan Technology Innovation Symposium on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, CA.  This event provides a forum for leaders in the VC community, CEOs of emerging companies and JPMC technology and banking leaders to network and exchange ideas on technology innovation and trends”

How nice, to be included in this esteemed company.  Here’s what the company looked like:

Sigh – besides the lovely ladies who handed me my badge when I arrived, other women were quite scarce – the typical VC Partner/High Tech CEO crowd.  At least there was no line for the restroom.

PS – future posts to come on why and how we can change this – we clearly can’t just “wait on the world to change”
