The women gap in ICT (from hardcore programmers to business analysts) is an interesting conundrum. The demand and opportunity for women to have an awesome, well-paid and challenging career is there, so why is it not pursued more? It is an intelligent career choice so where does the interest in technologies fail.
The ‘women in ICT gap’ is a hot topic and with the high profile recent successes of women in the news recently (Marissa Mayer is CEO of Yahoo! and a Kiwi Victoria Ransoms company Wildfire brought out by Google) brings it into the limelight even more.
