"In preparation for the summit, our team produced several videos, including one that partly cropped me in for what was meant to be a humorous exchange to highlight our commitment to engagement. Regrettably, the video played on gender stereotypes and was inappropriate. It was particularly offensive to us, because we believe that diversity of background and perspective is one of Marketo’s great strengths. I apologize to anyone who was offended by the video. We immediately eliminated it from the conference site and replaced it with one of our other videos. I can promise that we’ll always be diligent to assure that we live up to our strong values every day."
