Episode Description

The Buzz 1: “There is such a thing as a glass ceiling…the invisible barrier which prevents women from advancement in their profession. Do we have an unacknowledged barrier that is an obstacle for women in Tech who are indeed skilled and experienced but can’t get a promotion?” [huddle.eurostarsoftwaretesting.com] The Buzz 2: “The label 'woman in tech' seems redundant these days – how many women would refer to themselves as ‘a female engineer’ or ‘the company’s female CTO’? However, there still exists a disparity in the pay scales and ability to climb the career ladder between men and women working in the technology sector." [codemotion.com] The Buzz 3: "In 2015, the National Center for Women & Information Technology found women hold only a quarter of computing jobs, even though they make up about half of the total workforce. Unfortunately, statistics like these remain unsurprising and slow to change." [datacenterdynamics.com] The Buzz 4: “Due to gender discrimination, men tend to advance in their career merely on the ‘potential’ they exhibit whereas actual ‘performance’ determines how far women in technology proceed in their respective careers.…At current advancement rates, it will take 100 years for women in technical and non-technical roles to reach parity with men at the C-level." [content.techgig.com/leadership] We’ll ask Lisa Dalesandro DiChristofer, Lori Rosano, Debbie Scott and Kylie Woods for their take on The Future of Women in Tech: Time to Smash the Glass Ceiling?
