AIESECLife: Two Alumni Explore Women & Code –  Karen Thigpen January 22, 2015

Ever wonder why you don’t see many women in computer science jobs? You might see plenty of women in tech companies who work in business development, talent management, or marketing, but do you see many who code?   The global economy is demanding more and more computer scientists and software engineers, but why are there few females who pursue these degrees and work in these fields?  AIESEC alumni Robin Hauser Reynolds (Berkeley ’86) and Staci Hartman (Berkeley ’86, US ’87), two business women turned film producers, began pondering this very intriguing question a few years after sending their own daughters off to college and into the workforce.  The result was a new documentary called, Code: Debugging the Gender Gap. Hauser Reynolds told...

WIRED-Tech’s Gender Gap Wasn’t Always So Bad. Here’s How It Got Worse-Davey Alba November 25, 2014

Robin Hauser Reynolds says her new film, a study of gender in Silicon Valley, was sparked by a call from her daughter. This was about a year and a half ago, and her daughter was away at college. Sounding distraught, she told Reynolds she was dropping out of her computer science major, because she was underperforming. “Of course, she was doing just fine. She was in the top third of her class,” says Reynolds, a filmmaker based in San Francisco. “But she was just one of two women in a class of 35.”

Vogue-How Pinterest Engineer Tracy Chou is Breaking the Silicon Ceiling-Nathan Heller November 21, 2014

Tracy Chou, a young engineer at Pinterest, is tackling tech’s women problem head-on. “There are a lot of engineers here,” Tracy Chou, a programmer at Pinterest and one of the fastest-rising engineers in tech, tells me one evening at Dogpatch Boulders, a climbing gym named after the bayside San Francisco neighborhood now transformed into a playground for the start-up set. Climbers scale the walls around us like squirrels navigating the top branches of a maple tree. Chou, a stylish young woman with the soft, wry smile of a confident student and a scientist’s avidity for facts, started climbing about a year ago, at the suggestion of a Pinterest colleague. The sport appeals to many engineers, who often describe routes as “problems” and reaching the top as “solving a problem.” Rock climbing, like so many freshly popular pastimes, has become a marker of the national ascent of...

ABC7 News-Documentary Examines Barriers to Women Entering Tech Industry-Jennifer Olney November 10, 2014

Currently, in the tech industry there are more jobs available than qualified candidates. Even in good times, half the population is being left behind. Women still make up only a small percentage of the high tech job force. One Bay Area filmmaker looked into what it will take to create a better future for women in the world of computers. In the fast moving world of computer science, one equation just doesn't seem to add up. The number of jobs for software engineers is rising, but the percentage of women graduating with computer science degrees is going...

Fast Company –The Fascinating Evolution of Brogramming and the Fight to Get Women Back–by Jane Porter October 20, 2014

IN THE 1960S WOMEN MADE UP ABOUT 50% OF ALL COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS, SO WHAT HAPPENED? Since her 20-year-old daughter told her she was dropping her computer science major in college, Robin Hauser Reynolds has made it her mission to understand why the coding industry can be so unwelcoming to women. Why is it that while 37% of U.S. college computer science grads in 1985 were women, today only 17% are? Reynolds has talked to women coders, historians, neuroscientists, psychologists, and people working inside some of the biggest tech companies in Silicon Valley, looking for answers. The result is a documentary film, CODE, that recently raised more than $86,000 through an Indiegogo...
