It’s no secret that less women than ever are choosing information technology as a career. But few IT managers know why it matters and those that do may be at a loss to know how to recruit and retain a gender diverse team.
In this edition, we listen to a condensed version of a webcast talk given by Dr. Wendy Cukier, the Associate Dean of the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University and one of Canada’s leading authorities on emerging technologies. Dr. Cukier has been conducting research for CATA-WIT, part of the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance and she recently released her study results on the status of Canadian women in technology.
