Gender in Tech Librarianship, by Roy Tennant - The Digital Shift

Gender in Tech Librarianship, by Roy Tennant - The Digital Shift | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Certainly I’ve written about this issue before, and I will keep writing about it until there are no more reasons to do so. But the reason why I’m writing about the issue of gender imbalance in library tech is because I was recently at the Internet Librarian Conference in Monterey, CA, where my esteemed professional colleague and completely famous Sarah Houghton, “Librarian in Black” had organized a panel on this very topic.
Karen du Toit's insight:
The topic is worth mentioning! Sad to hear that it is still happening!

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."
