It seems that I cannot open a browser or social media page without some reference to women in technology companies these days. On one hand, it seems like we are not making the traction we had hoped in the workplace. On the other hand, the attention and momentum to create corporate cultures that effectively embrace differences while minimizing negative interactions with sexual undertones are brewing in all types of companies and industry.
Although bringing this forward is not easy but the brave have continued to push people and organizations in new ways. As far as I can tell, change is happening and Tech Savvy Women is thrilled to be part of it!

With this important focus that The Sun news led with Tech Savvy Women this week. YAHOO!!!
