Why are women so underrepresented in IT careers?
blackdog 2 years ago
I don't know the exact percentages, but I think that it is fair to say that the majority of individuals in IT are male. Why is this the situation? I work at a pretty progressive company, and even here, I would guess the ratio is 4 males for every 1 female in IT. At best. It certainly isn't the quality of work or ability, I see the same sort of competence (and incompetence) from both genders. So, what is keeping IT from being a more gender neutral career choice?
