Please don't take this as a push back, but as additional information we all need to know. A FACT that keeps getting overlooked is that only 24% of STEM jobs in the US are held by women. This in itself creates a disproportionate number of men being promoted more than women so it's just not an aggressive thing that gets men promoted, it's also the numbers. Yet when this is brought up many are chastised for making this point.

Through out my 35 years in this industry there have been many changes. One of the best improvements is more women in tech. This gives teams a diverse set of skills and thoughts about solving problems that were not around in the early days. We need more!

If we want to fix this problem we need more young women to get involved in STEM degrees and jobs.

You’re right. Sometimes I forget being on a team with multiple ladies kicking butt. 😊 but change is coming. 🙌🏼
