I would like to see more diversity at my company, but representation by women (not surprisingly) stays representative of the percentage of female applicants we see. That is too say, not very high. I would like to encourage more female applicants to apply to our development shop and to tech positions more generally.
So, here are my questions:
- Are there any recommendations on what an employer can do to make his/her company more attractive to female applicants?
- How can a business do more to encourage more women choosing tech as a career path?
I am a father of a young girl (age 10) and I'd like to be sure the industry is as open to her - and other aspiring female programers - as possible.
