Why Aren’t More Girls Pursuing Careers in Computing and Tech Fields? - MICHAEL GONCHAR, New York Times

In “What Really Keeps Women Out of Tech,” Eileen Pollack writes: Technology companies know they have a gender and diversity problem in their work force, and they are finally taking steps to try to fix it. But where are those new employees going to come from if women and minority students aren’t opting to study computer science or engineering? Figuring out why people who choose not to do something don’t in fact do it is like attempting to interview the elves who live inside your refrigerator but come out only when the light is off. People already working for a company might tell you what makes them unhappy. But these complaints won’t necessarily pinpoint the factors that keep women and minorities away from studying computer science in the first place. http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/10/30/why-arent-more-girls-pursuing-careers-in-computing-and-tech-fields/?ref=education&_r=1
