The math won't add up:

- When you have women in managent, you get 34% ROI jump

- Still women hold about 25% of IT positions

Zars Media's comment, August 29, 2013 9:24 AM
Interesting not one single black woman. We scream and shout diversity and inclusion for women but are we really screaming for diversity and inclusion for ALL women?

The Grill: Intel CIO Kimberly Stevenson is working to deliver products faster and drive revenue

The Grill: Intel CIO Kimberly Stevenson is working to deliver products faster and drive revenue | Women in Tech | Scoop.it
Kimberly Stevenson, corporate vice president and CIO at Intel, shares her ideas on running an IT department, the power of technology and the importance of technologists.
Logicworks's insight:

You have tweeted stories on girls and women in technology. What's your take on addressing the issue? There isn't a silver bullet. A whole pipeline of things have to happen. You have to keep girls in the STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] areas. We have research that says if you educate a girl, you can change the economics of the entire family and society. So we're interested in educating girls, particularly in the STEM area. Then you have to keep them in through the university programs.

We also did some research that said that girls don't appreciate what an engineering career could be for them. They tend to think that engineering is like a train engineer or a maintenance engineer. But when you have the opportunity to explain what a career in engineering is and the income potential, you canchange girls' minds about pursuing a career in the field of engineering. So we have to promote the profession in a way that's educating all kids, but girls in particular.
