Women in Tech Spotlight: We Need More Women!

Recently, I read an article in Glamour magazine ~ women in tech: we really do need more!  I love what they are doing to throw some light on the lack of women in high-level tech jobs.  I wanted to write about it as well in order to get the word out.  Tech was definitely not something that I ever thought about in college or high school.  I was good at math but I never thought I liked computers. Now, I think that maybe I did have an interest there that I didn’t know even know that I had.

Women in Tech Spotlight: We Need More Women!

The Facts:

  • Women make up 48% of the workforce and hold just 24% of the jobs in science, technology, engineering and math.
  • The average woman’s salary is 33% higher in science, tech, engineering and math.
  • Tech skills are in very high demand. The more valuable your skills the better!

  • Take a computer science or IT class at a community college.
  • Just dive in and do it. Doing is the best way of learning.
  • Draw attention to yourself!  Show off a little instead of just focusing on getting the job done.
  • Play computer games. Video games don’t have to be only for the guys!
  • Just go for it!  Don’t be afraid of what society thinks of you or the stereotypes that are involved in any industry.
  • Even if your background isn’t in tech, it’s not too late! Many of today’s top tech entrepreneurs had nontechnical backgrounds. Zynga founder Mark Pincus majored in economics; Groupon’s Andrew Mason was a music major.
