This.On the gender gap in tech workers, by @rtennant http://t.co/rQ0310ST...

 

"[...]we can change things:


1. Work to change the culture. In many library tech situations, whether it is a chatroom or a server room, it’s still a men’s locker room atmosphere. 
2. Support and encourage women who try. 
3. Recruit and support women who are interested. 
4. If you are well along in your career, mentor promising women. 
5. Be verbose and inclusive with explanations, and spare with posturing."

"Findings from Softlink’s annual Australian School Library Survey have revealed a positive link between literacy results and school library resourcing levels. The 2012 survey found schools with higher than the national average NAPLAN reading literacy scores received above average levels of library funding and staffing. 

A comparable result was identified between schools with low NAPLAN scores and low funding levels, with the relationship’s significance increasing from primary to secondary school.  These results were echoed in the 2010 and 2011 surveys."
