Women in Tech: “We must pay attention to intersectional challenges”

Four years ago, we launched a diversity series aimed at bringing the most inspirational and powerful women in the tech scene to your attention. Today, we’d like you to meet Pernille Bjørn, professor & Head of Department for Research at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Previously, Pernille presented a keynote address at the ACM ESEC/FSE conference in November.

Mind the (IT) gap — and fill it with more women

A recent CIO article pointed out that despite composing 47% of the U.S. labor force, women still make up just 25% of tech workers. Unconscious bias due to lack of representation or possibly more blatant gender discrimination could understandably be deterring women from pursuing tech jobs. It’s important to understand and try to combat these forces when formulating solutions.
