Women in Information Technology

The National Center for Women & Information Technology was founded in 2003 to ensure that women's knowledge and skills are fully represented in the creation, development, and consumption of information technology.

They recently (11-07) published their NCWIT Scorecard on the Status of Women in Information technology.

Among the alarming findings are:

  • Only 15% of the students taking Advanced Placement Computer Science exams are girls.
  • Between 1983 and 2006, the percentage of Computer Science bachelor's degrees awarded to women fell from 36% to 21%
  • While women hold more than half of all professional positions overall, they hold less than 22% of all software engineering positions.
  • Within the Fortune 500 IT Companies, fewer than 5% of Chief Technical officers are women.
