It's been reported many times that the technology industry is dominated by men. In fact, only 1 in 4 tech workers are women. Women hold only 9% of management positions, and account for only 14 percent of senior management positions at Silicon Valley startups. In this episode, we talk with two women who not only work in tech, but are leaders in the field. CNET.com Editor-in-Chief Lindsey Turrentine and Flickr Co-Founder and entrepreneur Caterina Fake.

How good food and good data improves student success. The female founders of Revolution Foods and Beyond 12.

Kirsten_kristin_truck_revfoods_small What kind of lunch can three dollars buy you? A bag of chips and a soda? An organic apple? The federal government allots only $2.93 for each school lunch. Yet student success is tied to good nutrition. On that kind of budget, how can meals be both healthy and taste good so kids will eat them?

And only 8% of low income students actually get a college degree. Many of those who get into school drop out within the first two years. Are high schools making the grade when it comes to college prep?

Revolution foods' Co-founders Kristin Richmond and Kirsten Tobey, and Alex Bernadotte, Founder of Beyond 12.

12: Anya Fernald, Belcampo Meat & Kara Goldin, Hint Water: A New Kind of Hunger Game

What we eat in America is largely driven by the big food companies' ability to churn it out fast and cheap--and it's leading to toxic environments and a precipitous climb in sugar consumption. On this episode of Inflection Point, we meet two women whose personal experiences led them to start food companies meant to transform the way we eat and drink.

What we eat in America is largely driven by the big food companies' ability to churn it out fast and cheap--and it's leading to toxic environments and a precipitous climb in sugar consumption.  On this episode of Inflection Point, we meet two women whose personal experiences led them to start food companies meant to transform the way we eat and drink.
Anya Fernald started BelCampo Meat to raise the quality and locality of the meat we eat, and Kara Goldin started Hint Water to replace 'sugar-free' beverages and encourage more water consumption.
A new kind of hunger game. That's our Inflection Point.
