Hillary Clinton spoke at the Lead On: Watermark’s Silicon Valley Conference for Women in Santa Clara Tuesday, amid speculation on whether the former secretary of state, senator and first lady will run for president.

In her first U.S. speech of the year, Clinton spoke about women’s empowerment, a topic expected to be central to her long-anticipated second run for the White House.

Clinton called on female technology executives to do more to help women in leadership: “As women, let us do more to help all women lead on and lead. What you do doesn’t have to be dramatic. You don’t have to run for office. Although if you do more power to you.”
