Women In Technology: Overcoming Obstacles to STEM Careers

For a woman, a career in IT can be an exercise in isolation. According to the National Center for Women & Information Technology, women hold 56% of all professional occupations but only 11% of executives at Fortune 500 tech companies are women. A report released by the center in 2009 showed that 41% of women leave technology companies after 10 years, compared to only 17% of men.
