Why Women Hate IT (2000 article)

March 21, 2008

Article from 2000 that looks at why, among other things, why the percentage of women in IT had dropped through the 1990s. I don’t think things have changed much in the past 8 years.

Anecdote: I work for a large financial institution that has done a great deal to promote hiring diversity. I was at a meeting with some 150 IT persons from said institution. There were perhaps, 2-3 women there (indeed no African Americans or Hispanics either). Yes, I make it a point to mentally look at gatherings such as things and take stock of who’s there.
