TEDx Talk - Women in Tech: The Missing Force

This talk was given at TEDxCollegeofWilliamAndMary, April 6 2014. The theme of the TEDx was "Forward" and the forces shaping our future. I spoke about women in tech and that they're a missing force.

Quick summary: 1985 was a significant year for women studying computer science. 37% of the computer science degrees in the US that year were awarded to women.

In 2012, that number had dropped to 18%.

And the latest numbers from the College Board show that’s consistent with the number of young women who take the AP Computer Science exam. A mere 18%.

In this talk, I shared why women need to be a force shaping the future of technology, the impact that gender diversity has on innovation and leadership, and one idea to help reverse the decline of women in tech.

  • I thought I was good at writing essays all through freshman and sophomore year of high school but then in my junior year I got this awful teacher (I doubt you’re reading this, but screw you Mr. Murphy) He made us write research papers or literature analysis essays that were like 15 pages long. It was ridiculous. Anyway, I found ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ and since then I’ve been ordering term papers from this one writer. His stuff is amazing and he always finishes it super quickly. Good luck with your order!
