A Look at Women in Technology

By Destination Z posted Mon December 23, 2019 03:28 PM

Women’s roles in technology are increasing in visibility as the industry grows. However, surveys show—and women in the field today say—there is room to grow and challenges to overcome, noting that gender sometimes holds them back. Despite this, women also celebrate successes in the workplace.

In the November/December IBM Systems magazine, IBM Z, 12 women in a variety of roles and positions—IBM clients, business partners and IBMers—who are pursuing careers in technology are profiled on what it’s like to be a woman in technology.

I encourage you to read what they have to say, and please—men and women both—share your experiences and thoughts on this important topic in the comments below.
