Having been in technology for almost 30 years, I have the unique experience of watching my two daughters enter similar worlds today and seeing how much, if anything, has changed for women. My oldest daughter is currently in a post college training program for a major cloud infrastructure provider, where only six of the 19 participants are women. My foggy memory is that this has not changed dramatically since I attended a tech consulting program at the start of my career. This ratio is likely why my younger daughter, an engineering student, is being courted for a free weekend in Tahoe just to get her interested in applying for certain internships (the weekend is only for female engineers). So, what, if anything, is being done to encourage women to pursue technology careers today (and is it enough)?
