Breaking Through the Glass Door - (Archived)

I recently attended a Women in Technology (WIT) event with yet another fantastic speaker.  The topic of the evening was The State of Diversity in Corporate America: The New Rules of Breaking the Glass Ceiling.  A representative of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) explained how she sees the barrier to women in the technology industry as more of a glass door than a glass ceiling.  As women pass by the door to a career in technology, there is no keyhole, no door handle, and therefore no clearly visible access into the industry.  With little more than a glance inside the door, women either don’t know how to enter or don’t have a desire to enter. 

In many other professional industries, there seems to be less gender disparity in previously male-dominated terrain,?? so what makes the technology industry different?  Why do men still dominate such a fascinating and fast-growing field?  Leave us a comment and share your thoughts!
