Yunha Kim (standing on the right) is co-founder and CEO of Locket.
We found Yunha Kim’s article, “What I learned in My First Year as a Female Startup CEO,” incredibly interesting. In her article, Yunha, co-founder and CEO of San Francisco-based tech business Locket, chronicles the good and bad of being a female CEO in the male-dominated field of tech.
One thing that really stood out to us was that even being a woman on the top won’t shield you from certain deviants! For example, Yunha shares this email from a developer she was looking at hiring, it reads:
“I’m pretty happy with current job, but if you’re single I’d like to date you. Perhaps there are some unconventional ways to lure me away from my company (besides stock options) if you know what I mean :)”
