Inc. – ‘CODE’: How America Keeps Women Out of Tech – Graham Winfrey April 27, 2015

Are boys better than girls at computers? The obvious answer to that question is no, but you'd be surprised how much American culture has contributed to the stereotype that men are more gifted than women when it comes to computer science. The new documentary CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, which recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, exposes some of the startling facts about how women have been marginalized in the U.S.'s male-dominated tech sector, which now suffers from a severe lack of gender...

Český rozhlas – Den nerovnosti mužů a žen? – Magdaléna Trusinová June 21, 2015

V pátek 19. června si celý svět připomínal Den rovnosti mužů a žen. Situaci v Česku popsal např. komentátor Martin Fendrych zde, my se teď zaměříme pouze na chybějící ženy v IT oblasti. V roce 2020 bude ve Spojených státech 1 400 000 pracovních míst pro inženýry informatiky. Toto vzdělání ale bude mít jen 400 tisíc lidí. Co s jedním miliónem neobsazených IT míst? A jak se na podobnou situaci připravuje Česko a...

International Business Times – Girls In STEM: Parent Stereotypes May Discourage Daughters From Science, Technology, Engineering, Math Careers: Study – Julia Glum  April 24, 2015

The world has a problem getting -- and keeping -- girls in science, despite campaigns in various countries to raise awareness in schools and recruit students to tech companies. But recent research suggests children's parents could be the ones primarily perpetuating gender stereotypes in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The Institution of Engineering and Technology, a professional British society, found that only 7 percent of mothers and fathers said they would encourage their daughters to pursue engineering careers. When parents were asked what kinds of jobs they thought their daughters would like, their responses were dominated by vocations traditionally seen as female, including education and child care, the arts, healthcare and hair and beauty, according to an article published Friday in Plants & Works Engineering magazine. When they were asked the same about their sons, parents mentioned information technology, sports and...

Fortune – A new documentary shows what happens when there aren’t enough women in tech – Matt McCue April 24, 2015

A new documentary by Robin Hauser Reynolds digs into the reasons the tech industry needs more female computer programmers. When film producer Robin Hauser Reynolds told her mother that she was making a documentary about the lack of female computer programmers, and her mother’s response was: Why does it matter who’s doing the coding, so long as the work gets done? That’s an important question. Anyone who follows the tech press knows that women are underrepresented in computer science and technical jobs. As of the middle of last year, women held 18% or fewer of the tech positions at Pandora, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. And while some people find it self-evident that the tech industry should have a more equitable gender split, convincing the skeptics requires coming up with a good answer to Reynolds’ mother’s...

San Francisco Chronicle – New documentary asks: Why there are no women in tech? – Kristen V. Brown April 24, 2015

The documentary “CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap” is a sweeping view of Silicon Valley’s gender disparity, but at the center of it is one simple question: Where are all the women in tech? While the tech industry has spent the past year wringing its hands over what to do about its dismal numbers of women, “CODE” director Robin Hauser Reynolds has been investigating the root of the problem, seeking out companies like Etsy that are already taking steps to solve it. The Chronicle chatted with Reynolds in New York, where the film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this week. The interview has been edited for length and...

Salon – “Being good at your job isn’t enough”: A new documentary looks at the history — and future — of women in tech – Katie McDonough April 24, 2015

There is a lot of information out there right now about education and the problem of the “pipeline” when it comes to increasing diversity in tech. A growing number of people are talking about work culture and the kind of networks that connect candidates to jobs in a field that venerates “white, male nerds who’ve dropped out of Harvard or Stanford” at the expense of virtually everyone else. These are major steps forward from even four or five years ago, but progress remains slow. And one thing that becomes clear after watching “CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap,” a documentary that screened this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, is that the problem is much bigger than the pipeline of computer science majors. If you’re wondering why there are so few women — and particularly so few women of color — in tech, start by looking at the messages kids are getting as early as elementary...

Silicon Beat – Quoted: Documentary takes on tech gender gap – Levi Sumagaysay April 23, 2015

“I didn’t want to make a film about complaining, I’m not a fan of it. But I realized there was a huge responsibility for me not being a woman in tech, that I had to do justice to what was really going on in the industry. That meant showing women happy in their space, women that weren’t happy that left, and showing that some women are there and are sort of suffering quietly. I think it’s just important to show all of it.” — Robin Hauser Reynolds, director of the documentary “CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this...
