Women in IT

Greetings and Salutations,

In my web travels today, I discovered a rather perturbing fact. It seems that there is a growing trend where . I was originally alerted to the fact by this article that talks about the one women’s decision to leave IT.

At first I left a on her site … but the more I thought about it, the louder that internal ranter’s voice of dissension became in me. So, I thought to myself, what are you going to do about it?

Well, to be honest … I don’t know … I mean I could go on one of my (in)famous tirades … but that’s not going to make anything better.

Instead, for now, I’m going to list out sites that may be useful to the fairer sex (no disrespect intended) to find support, networking opportunities, mentoring and general assistance from like minded and successful women.

Australian

Canadian

US Centric

UK

WorldWide

Other sites of interest

Although I can’t make any promises, I will try to line up some appointments with some of the women who have “made it” in IT. If I succeed, I’ll post up their commentary on this blog. If you are a women who has made it, drop me a line!

In the meantime, if you have other links that could be useful to women in IT, or know of networking or support groups, associations, or the like, please post it in the comments for all to see.

TTFN!
