These Are The 30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech

These Are The 30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech | Women Tech | Scoop.it

Women are (relatively) few and far between in the tech industry.

They make up less than 10% of venture capitalists, and they leave the industry at twice the rate of men, according to a recent study by the Kauffman Foundation. 

There’s also a shortage of women pursuing engineering, particularly software engineering.

But the women who do choose to enter the tech industry in one way or another are doing incredibly important work. 

Over the last couple of weeks, Business Insider accepted nominations for the most important women 30 years old or under in tech. They combined those nominations with their own research to give readers a definitive list and ranking.

Caroline Drucker: 'The secret to getting more women into tech' (Wired UK)

Caroline Drucker: 'The secret to getting more women into tech' (Wired UK) | Women Tech | Scoop.it

How can we get more women into tech? Mentorship programmes? Sensitivity training for venture capitalists? I propose a simpler solution.  In the workplace, women should start calling themselves women, not girls. It sounds silly, but hear me out. If all women refer to themselves as women in the sausage party that we call the tech world, we'll have at least double the number. This may be a case of semantics, but words are powerful. How we speak reflects how we see the world, and in turn, how others see us. Word choice can have as much of an impact as choosing to wear a wool poncho instead of a suit to your board meeting. (Though, truth be told, I could never hold anything against someone wearing a poncho.)..."
