About

Speak up is a technological prototype that addresses the current meeting room culture where men interrupt women more frequently than the reverse. This problem results in women's ideas not being heard as often in the professional world. SpeakUp can help tackle that problem in two ways: 1. SpeakUp can record meetings and show a group dashboard of how much each person has talked compared to others to help raise awareness of any one person's voice being underrepresented. 2. A woman going into a meeting can run SpeakUp on her laptop and the app will give her live tips on how to communicate her ideas more effectively. It will do this by measuring volume and the speed of her speech and let her know if, for example, she needs to talk louder. After the meeting has passed, SpeakUp will suggest coaching to help her with any areas where she can improve.
