Women in Data

Women in Data | Data Nerd's Corner | Scoop.it
The gender gap in tech is shrinking. Women are still an underrepresented minority in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), but women in data and technology are no longer outliers or anomalies. For this book, author and data warrior Cornelia Lévy-Bencheton interviewed 15 women in data to learn how they achieved their current level of success, what motivated them to get there, and their views about opportunities for women.
Carla Gentry CSPO's insight:

Introducing women to STEM is now a nationwide crusade, but advancing the idea that gender diversity fuels creativity, innovation, and economic growth is still a challenge. The stories in this book are inspiring, revealing insights that will widen the path for even more women in tech.
