Disrupting the Clubby World of Venture Capital

A webinar on venture capital and the women who are breaking the glass ceiling.


Hear from Mallun Yen and Leyla Seka, the co-founders and Partners of Operator Collective, a disruptive new venture fund that has raised over $45 million with 90% of the investors being women. Mallun is a lawyer by training and who began her career as VP and Deputy GC at Cisco Systems, and will also speak about her trailblazing legal career, and how she transitioned from law into business. Leyla, a former EVP of Salesforce, will also speak about how she helped scale Salesforce into a $16 billion company, and how she helped pave the way so Salesforce could close the pay gap between male and female employees.

This panel will also be joined by Laura Bushnell, a partner at King & Spalding, who specializes in counseling high growth technology and life sciences companies on capital raising matters. Laura will lay the groundwork for this discussion.

King & Spalding partner Quyen Ta will moderate this panel. Quyen is a trial lawyer and lead counsel focusing on consumer class actions and complex civil litigation and trials. Quyen is also a leader and frequent speaker on diversity and inclusion issues.

Free to watch. And MCLE credit available for $36
