Infographic | Women Who Tech.

A friend shared this with me on Facebook and I think some of the numbers are quite interesting.

It is very focused on Engineering, Computer Science, and Entrepreneurial endeavors. I would be interested in seeing what the numbers look like for women in arts and technology and digital design as I think these are important sectors that are somewhat neglected when we talk about women in STEM. Perhaps it is because these other areas already have substantial female participation? Either way, we should be careful to not devalue these areas as well. For example, other than entrepreneurs, these numbers don’t really represent the number of amazing women we have in our Emerging Media and Communication programs at UTD.
