Limited Capacity filling up

In spite of prominent gains in the overall workforce, the presence of women in technology fields is not only low but seems to be shrinking! There is still a dearth of women in technology fields, with female Computer Science making up only 18% of students (down from 37% of students in the mid-1980’s). Fewer than 20% of tech jobs in high-profile companies (such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter) are staffed by women. Why is technology still a “boy’s club”? How are we, as educators, contributing to this problem and what can we do to improve? Join us for a frank discussion of women in technology fields. What hurdles do girls and women face at various stages? How can educators, administrators, and families help bring more women into this field and retain them?
