In the past century, women have gained the right to own land, to vote, to have equal access to job listings, to purchase the birth control pill, to get a credit card in their own name, and to fight in combat. However, one thing has remained unchanged: our unequal workplace. But why are so many people blind to the issue?

In You Can’t Fix What You Can’t See, tech guru Karen Cornwell offers a fascinating narrative that explains how we got here and why it's invisible to some. After spending many years in the world of technology, she made a stark discovery: men simply don't “see” the constant battle women are in. But, if they could, they would be determined to help us fix the inequality.

You Can’t Fix What You Can’t See provides a framework to understand some of the key differences between the way men and women think to bring new meaning to your experiences (both past and present). It will give you the power to “see” differently, to interpret actions, behavior, and conversations through a new and more powerful lens. For business owners, it explains how to leverage diversity to drive innovation, boost engagement, and business performance. Find the tools and motivation you need to pursue change so that our next generation inherits a better, more inclusive workplace.

Leverage Gender Differences to Drive Innovation

My Story

Karen Cornwell is well-versed in tech. She has lived it, learned from it, and wants to change the tide for the next generation of technology aficionados. She has a BS and MS in Engineering and an MBA from Santa Clara University. All this coupled with more than two decades of navigating in the rough and tumble world of tech propel her on her lifelong quest to improve innovation and drive top-line growth for Technology Companies.

With experience in Product Management, Marketing, Engineering, Sales, Account Management and Business Development with several Silicon Valley Companies, Karen is uniquely qualified to pilot companies to significantly higher performance levels. Karen has founded two companies. ConsultCornwell drives innovation and revenue generation by creating a strategic customer-centric product vision with a team, then guides the team to create the tools needed to secure clients. AttunoVation drives innovation by changing the company from the inside out. It allows leaders to understand and leverage diversity while engaging, energizing and empowering employees to excel. When Karen isn’t consulting to drive innovation, you can find her speaking on stage.

In her typical entrepreneurial spirit, Karen is now teaming up with New Degree Press to publish her first book, You Can’t Fix What You Can’t See. In it, she reaches across the gender divide to shed light on how people process information differently, allowing readers to leverage diversity to enhance innovation and creativity while boosting engagement and overall company performance.

What People Say About the Book

"You Can’t Fix What You Can’t See provides a fresh, insightful look at an increasingly important topic. In a space where uninformed opinions dominate and facts are often scarce, the author supports her ideas with statistics and examples that are relevant, credible, and often fascinating.  The information conveyed in this highly readable book taught me a lot I didn’t know, including some things I knew perfectly well before I read the book -- except, it turns out, I was wrong."
